Milk & Cookies.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

I can't say I've had a chocolate chip cookie I didn't like, but some have been definitely better than others.  In my quest for this childhood staple, my taste buds are telling me I've found a winner.  I came across this recipe and I must say it lives up to its ratings.  The cookie is perfectly crunchy on the outside and delightfully gooey on the inside.  I baked over 30 of these yummy bites and felt compelled to bring some to work (otherwise this girl's tummy would be a few sizes larger than needed).  With their mouths half full, my co-workers were saying how delicious they were and endlessly thanking me for bringing them in!  So my recommendation to you is to do yourself a favor and bake a batch of these easy to make chocolate chip cookies.  Trust me, your family and friends will be thanking you!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees 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.
