Best Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies!

{picture from tonight's batch of cookies, featured on my mother's pottery}

I've done it!  I have found THE recipe, and by THE I mean the yummiest gooiest most superb recipe for chocolate chip cookies!  Here's how it happened:

Our neighbor across the street, Ed, watched our sweet lil pup for us while we were out of town so I wanted to make him a "thank you" treat.  I was browsing on the internet for inspirationg and just happened to see a good looking picture for cookies on pinterest.  I clicked on the link and followed my way to macdaddy recipe itself.  I just happened to have all of the ingredients to conjure the cookies up, so conjure up I did....

Well, it just so happens that I am not really a big fan of chocolate chips cookies (who would have thunk?) so I didn't even try the cookies before I packaged them up and walked them over to Ed's.  There were a few cookies left though, so I gave some to Wil for work and took some to my work as well.

It wasn't too long after that that Wil exploded with enthusiasm on how amazing these cookies were.  His co-workers agreed they were fantastic.  My coworkers ate them up before I even knew what happened and Ed and his wife have said they were the best chocolate chips cookies they have ever had.

Wow.  And I didn't even try one.

So after all that fuss, I made them again tonight and tried one.  Yup.  They were right.  They are absolutely fantastic!

So, without further ado, make your way to the original recipe at OR follow the recipe I have posted below.  (The original recipe has nuts in it, but I make them without.)

You will Need:

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 Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

2.  Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.  Beat the eggs in one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water and add it to the batter along with the salt.  Stir in the flour one cup at a time.  Then add the chocolate chips.

3.  Drop spoonful portions of the batter onto an ungreased pan or baking stone. (I use a baking stone and they turn out perfectly gooey and crispy)

4.  Bake each batch about 10 minutes or until they are slightly brown.

Makes about 25-30 cookies.

Hope you enjoy!  I'd love to hear how you like them!
