Chocolate Chip Cookies - 2011 Sun, Sep 25

I've been on the quest to make some soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies for ages. My cookie dough though was always either too wet, or too dry. This time I finally got the cookies to turn out just right, and these were amazing.

I love that this is the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe because you don't need to chill the dough, therefore no chilling time means eating cookies sooner.

• 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
• 1 cup white granulated 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 sea salt
• 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
• 1 cup chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Cream together the butter and sugars 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 remaining dry ingredients (flour and salt). Once mixed, fold in chocolate chips, and nuts.
5. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets with parchment paper. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
6. Cool on a wire rack for about 15 minutes before serving.
