Baking for the Holidays Part 2

Chocolate Chip Cookies~~

Another "So Easy~So Good" recipe~~


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
(to dissolve baking soda)

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
(I left the walnuts out~I like my chocolate chips with chocolate chips only!!)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

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 the salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips (and nuts if you are adding them).

And there is my happy face again helping with the Holiday baking!!

Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. I use this 
medium size scoop. It makes the perfect size cookie~~not to big, not to small.

Bake for about 10 minutes in preheated oven or until edges are nicely browned                                    (that's what the recipe calls for but I had to bake my cookies longer than this)

This recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies!

I have one more recipe to share with you and I promise~~I saved the best for last!!
