About a year ago, I wrote here that I wanted to make a good batch of chocolate chip cookies. Sunday right before Hurricane Sandy came, I baked a batch of cookies that came out really good, much to my surprise!

Here is the recipe I used: Makes 12 servings (it makes more, but the recipe says that number)

-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1/2 cup white sugar
-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-1 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon hot water
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
-2/3 cup and 1 tablespoonchopped walnuts

PREP:20 mins
COOK:10 mins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

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. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. 

 Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.

Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

I froze the rest of the cookie dough to be used for a later date. When I made the second batch of cookies they come out even better!
