"Blue Ribbon" Chocolate Chip Cookies

 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)

2 eggs
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. 

Do you have a favorite recipe??
