Tender Chocolate Chip Cookies

After mentioning the other day that it's been 2 years since I got my KitchenAid mixer and I had yet to open it, I realized how ridiculous that sounded. So, I spent my Saturday evening deep cleaning my kitchen (& ruining my manicure) and getting it ready for this beauty:

"Black Beauty"

Isn't it beautiful? I can't believe, after wanting it for years, that I let it sit in the box for so long. Not only is it beautiful, it makes baking so much easier. You just stand there and watch while it does the work. Amazing.

This morning I saw this recipe in my blog roll and thought it'd be the perfect first recipe for my new mixer. I think "tender" is a funny word to describe a cookie, but it's pretty accurate. Although I might use chewy instead.
