Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the most awesome chocolate chip cookies you will ever make. I got the recipe from a friend many years ago and it's the only one I use now. They don't last long at our house, unless I manage to get a few to the freezer without anyone noticing!!


1 c. butter or marg. softened
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c white sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. warm water
1 1/2 cs. chocolate chips
Cream together softened marg, eggs and sugars. Add vanilla and water. Mix in seperate bowl - flour, baking soda, and chocolate chips. Add to creamed mixture, mix with spoon. Place on cookie sheet. I use a tbsp. quite round full (we like bigger cookies).

Bake for 8 minutes at 350F. The cookies will look like they are not quite done in the middle - this is perfect. They should be light brown around the edges. If they are too raw - bake one or two minutes more. Let them sit in the cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing to cool completely.

I've made this batch with white chocolate chips (chocolate chips give Brad migranes). I've also done this recipe with smarties or butterscotch chips.

  9. I am eating one of the cookies to this recipe as I type this.

    YUMMY! This recipe is definitely a keeper! Not too sweet or buttery, like alot of other recipes. Chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside. Delicious for both kids and adults alike!
