Absolutely Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Pipka

Hello Friends

Positively The Absolute Best Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Bake them today for a loved one or take a box of them to a local food bank or crisis center.

2 sticks butter, room temperature

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract ( I used 2 teaspoons)

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

2 large eggs

2 1/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon hot water

2 generous cups walnuts, broken into medium-size pieces

2 generous cups semisweet chocolate chips

Cream the butter. Add salt, vanilla and sugars. Beat well. Add eggs one at a time. Beat in 1/2 the flour. In a small cup stir the hot water into the baking soda to dissolve it. Mix it into the dough. Add rest of flour.

With a big spoon, stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips. Chill the dough overnight or several hours.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 375.

Using a 2 inch scoop, mound the dough on the cookie sheet, two inches apart. Flatten each cookie slightly.

Bake for 12-13 minutes until the edges are crispy.

Cool for a few minutes then transfer to a rack to continue cooling.
