I was asked if I ever make regular cookies.. sure, when I'm asked I'll bake just about anything.
These cookies are soft and perfect.. with big chunks of chocolate.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon hot water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand-held electric mixer, 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 then add to batter along with salt.
Mix in flour until incorporated.
Fold in chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.
Using a spring-loaded ice-cream scoop, drop even and large spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet
. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
