1). 20131204: Best Chocolate Chip Cookies click here:
• 1 cup butter, softened;
• 1 cup white sugar;
• 1 cup packed brown sugar;
• 2 eggs;
• 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;
• 1 cup chopped walnuts.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175°C).
Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then 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 pans.
Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
This is the perfect chocolate chip cookie!! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!! For added flavor I also add l cup of white chocolate chips (try the brand that Aldi’s carries…wonderful….better than Nestles!!) Some have stated that their cookies were too cakelike, this is caused by the addition of too much flour. To help prevent this, spoon flour into measuring cup, leveling off with knife, rather then dipping cup into flour. Roll dough into walnut size balls. Be careful not to overbake, I decrease my oven temperature to 325 and bake for l0 minutes. I have tried dozens of chocolate chip cookie recipes over the years, this one is far superior to any of them!! Makes 4 dozen(48 cookies).
