BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today, my 15 year old daughter had a craving for chocolate chip cookies.... and she wanted to make them all by herself.  She went to Pintrest and found a link over to All Recipes for this yummy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.  Meg did make them ALL by herself and they were fabulous.  She used my large cookie scoop and she was so proud of herself!  She just bagged up a few to take to school tomorrow to share with friends.

I have to say - they looked amazing and tasted even better!  I love the larger cookies!  The baking soda in hot water really helped the cookies keep a nice shape!  Way to go Meg!



Best Chocolate Chip Cookies 

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp hot water
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (Meg left these out)

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream together butter and sugars.  Beat in eggs one at a time - then stir in 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 an ungreased pan.  Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven or until edges are nicely brown.  * Meg had to bake for 12 minutes using the large cookie scoop
