Chocolate Chip Cookies
Forget those break and bake cookies. Enjoy the great taste of homemade cookies, fresh from the over. These cookies are as simple as they are scrumptious.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar to a smooth cream. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then mix in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Mix 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.
