Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies



Believe it or not, Hubby made these delicious cookies. He was feeling inspired to bake so he searched for the "Best Chocolate Chip Cookie" recipe and found it here. It really was good, and we made a ton! It kinda' looked like our favorite Nestle Tollhouse Cookies, but the batch we made was a bit thick. And unlike the real thing, these cookies are not that sweet. A good thing for me, but not for hubby's sweet tooth. 


I enjoyed these cookies tremendously, and I'm sure you will too!


What you need:

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon hot water
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels


What to do:

Preheat oven to 350°F.  

In a large bowl, beat together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Add in one eggs at a time, then vanilla. Continue beating until combined. Dissolve baking soda in hot water and add to batter along with salt. Stir in the flour and chocolate chips.

Tear a small piece (1 1/2 tablespoons) from the batter and work into a circle. Flatten it a bit and place on a pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges are nicely browned.


Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:

1. Original recipe calls for walnuts. We didn't have any so we skipped it. If you want to add some, use 1/2 cup.
2. We like our cookies soft and gooey. If you want them a bit harder, add a minute or two in the cooking time.
3. For a more uniform batch of cookies, use a tablespoon or ice cream scoop to measure the amount of batter.
4. Adding 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar will make the cookies a bit harder as well.
