Chocolate Chip Cookies with soft centers - Printable Recipe

This is a most excellent recipe; 
chocolate chip cookies with crisp edges 
and soft, chewy middles that stay soft!

1 cup sugar, granulated 
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (175 degrees C.)
Cream together butter & sugars until smooth.
Beat in one egg at a time, then stir in vanilla.
Dissolve baking soda in hot water, add to batter.
Stir in salt, flour, chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased pans;

In my photo, I substituted 1¾ cups of mini chocolate chips
because that's what I had on hand & I omitted the walnuts,
my DH is not a fan of nuts.

This is my new favorite cookie recipe,
I love that it stays soft. Enjoy.
