Classic chocolate chip cookies, with crisp edges and soft middles. This recipe makes about 12 large cookies, so if you want you can reduce the amount in each cookie but then be careful to bake for less time. This recipe can also be doubled.

Makes 12 servings
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened 
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp 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 chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg 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 (no need to flatten or shape in any way) onto ungreased pans, making sure to leave ample room for spreading. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
