This recipe makes the best chocolate chip cookies with chewy centres. I've tried many recipes but this by far makes the most consistent, delicious cookies. Both adults and kids will love them.
- 1 cup or 227g butter softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons hot water
- 2 cups Hershey’s Chip-its semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.
Then, beat the eggs in one at a time.
Stir in the vanilla extract. Continue to mix.
Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to the batter. Then add salt.
Finally, stir in flour, chocolate chips, and almonds. Scoop round spoonfuls of cookie batter onto your baking tray lined with parchment paper. Remember to space the scoops about 1-inch apart.
Depending on the heat of your oven, bake for about 12-15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned. I had to bake the cookies in two batches, as my oven just wasn’t big enough.
Once the cookies are done, place them on a cooling rack. Cool for at least 30 minutes before eating. In addition, cool them for at least an hour before storing them.
