Okay, they are not a blue ribbon winner, but they would be.
After several experiments, failed attempts, and a husband who found out there is such a thing as "too many chocolate chip cookies," I have come up with a pretty darn good recipe.
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter (has to be butter - not salted)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons hot water
3 cups white all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped walnuts (very optional)
Cream together the sugars and butter. Add the eggs, vanilla and hot water - mixing thoroughly after each addition. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients and mix. Add the chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes.
