Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

We spent a summer living in San Francisco and one of my favorite places to visit was Ghirardelli Square.  You can smell the chocolate from a few blocks away.  It is a chocolate lovers paradise!  My friend gave me this recipe and all my chocolaty, Ghirardelli memories came flowing back!

    This recipe is wrong. My wife made them and the came out flat as cardboard. The recipe calls for baking soda yet there is no acid for it to work on. When we substituted baking powder they came out much better.
