Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nothing satisfies a craving like a warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookie. With a cold glass of milk. I was relaxing the other weekend and randomly thought, "man, I'd really love to make some cookies. I wonder if we have all the ingredients?" And so it started. We sure did have the ingredients, and I found the most amazing recipe. I could have eaten the whole bowl of dough. I'm living on the edge. 


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 (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. 
3. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. 
4. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
5. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

* Eat cookies within 2-3 days for maximum freshness
