Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made this cookies yesterday and knew I had to share. They are nice and crunchy around the edges and chewy on the inside, which to me is the perfect cookie combination! I am a cookie fanatic so this post took priority over posting about my DIY weekend. I just had to share these first, but don’t worry I will get to my DIY soon!

Ingredients

  • 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)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  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. Dissolve baking soda in hot water.  Add to batter along with salt.
  3. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

Enjoy!
