Rainy Day Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these today.... they turned out FANTASTIC!

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp hot water
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Cream together the butter, white and brown sugar until smooth.
  • Beat eggs one at a time
  • Stir in the vanilla
  • Dissolve baking soda into the hot water and add to the batter with the salt
  • Stir in flour, the chocolate chips
  • Drop spoonfuls onto ungreased pans
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are nicely browned
I made about 12 cookies. I seperated the rest of the dough onto some plastic wrap. Wrapped it up and put it into a freezer ziplock for another day. (double wrapping prevents freezer burn and odor absorbtion) The dough will be good for up to 4 to 6 weeks, so I wrote the date on the bag.
When its time to cook some more cookies I will put the dough in the fridge for a few hours to dethaw and then I will let you know how they taste, after freezing!
