My "chef" son, Zachary made these great chocolate chip cookies last week! I'm thankful he likes to cook. We're sure going to miss him around here next year when he goes to college! He's always willing to help out or just cook for fun. His wife will like that, too!
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (he used milk chocolate and we will cut the amount some next time because we don't care for this many)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Cream together the butter, white sugar, brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, the stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts.
Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes or until edges are nicely browned.Pin It Now!
