Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am not much of a baker, as my husband can attest. However, I've been trying to improve my abilities. One of my main issues is that I don't read through the recipe fully, and then I don't measure exactly. For my son's first birthday party I really wanted to make cookies rather than getting a cake. Typically my husband would have made them because of my aforementioned struggles with baking. I needed to make them during the day while he was at work, though, so I was on my own. I decided to take my job very seriously. I read through the recipe a couple of times, set out all of my ingredients on the counter, and got to work. Guess what? They turned out GREAT! I was so proud of the cookies and wanted to share the recipe with you all. Here goes.

Chocolate Chip Cookies


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

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

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 the baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt.

Stir in flour and chocolate chips.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
