Heat oven to 350. Beat butter, brown sugar & sugar in a large bowl until light & fluffy. Add corn syrup, egg & vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda & salt & gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
