    Default Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Order nail wraps from a Jamberry Independent Consultant
    Description: I stumbled on this recipe for chocolate ship cookies on allrecipes.com. After making a few changes they are without a doubt the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had. The Cream of Tartar does nothing to the flavor of the cookies, but it does make the tops crackle when they bake, which I think looks nicer than smooth tops.

    Serving Size: 3-4 dozen

    Time: 1-2 hours including time to chill the dough

    Preparation: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    • 1 cup butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup white sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tsp. vanilla
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 2 tsp. hot water
    • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 1 cup chopped walnuts
    Steps:
    • Cream together butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs 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. Chill the dough. Drop by large spoonfuls (walnut-sized balls work great) onto ungreased pans. (I recommend using parchment paper to line the pans.)
    • Bake for 10-20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned. (The first batch I made did not brown AT ALL. The second batch - in the oven now - does seem to be browning. )

    All of my "tweaks" are reflected in the recipe above. Also, I think that what made the difference between the first and second batches was how long I chilled the dough. The first time I chilled it several hours. It was easier to work with getting on to the pan and the cookies came out a little thicker, but not really brown. The second time I was pressed for time and didn't chill very long at all. The dough was a PITA to work with and the cookies came out bigger and thinner and browned up nicely. I think that the warmer dough just spread out more in the oven. Either way they tasted great, though!

    I got it that the tweaks were reflected, but I was wondering if you played with the amounts or something......I have also never had water be an ingred in cookies
    Purely just curious bc I am never brave enough to change a recipe.

    SO chilling was the only thing different?
    Batch 1 in and almost done....no chilling here
    But the rest will go in tmr....only doing a few trays tonight with the kids.

    OH! I reduced the white sugar by 1/2 cup and increased the brown sugar by 1/2 cup. Then I added the cream of tartar. Don't give me too uch credit, though - I just put in the changes that were suggested by others on the site. That's why I LOVE that site for recipes (www.allrecipes.com), because of all the rating and feedback from people who cook more and better than I do with all their changes and suggestions.

    The water is just to dissolve the baking soda. One reviewer on the site said they eliminated the water and increased the vanilla extract, but I decided to skip that one. There seems to be plenty of vanilla in there already.

    Hope you like them. They were a BIG hit here!

    The cookies are rather yummy!!!!!

    I used WIlbur #558 chips(these are lush chips), medium ones, along with semi sweet and milk choc chips

    The cookies are very round and quite uniform....I like that.
    THey are also thick and soft!
    The big test will be how they are tmr.
    I gave a dozen to our neighbors tonight....E and Q had a *eh-hem* a few!
    (another neighbor(2 actually) came over to talk to dh, but neither wanted to try them...(not sure why, the whole house was smelling ccc!!!!!! how could they resist? ) And I packaged all but 4 for dh to take to work tmr.
