Ingredients
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, soften
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees, and line a large baking sheet with parchment (not wax) paper, then set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer, mix the butter and the sugars on high speed, until smooth, about 4-5 minutes. Stop twice to scrape down the sides of bowl.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla extract, and mix on medium speed until smooth.
  4. Slowly add the flour and salt, and mix on medium-low speed, until completely integrated, but do not over mix.
  5. In a small bowl, stir the baking soda and hot water together. Add the baking soda mixture and mix on medium-low speed until smooth.
  6. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low, add the chocolate chips, and mix until it's evenly distributed in the batter.
  7. With a scooper (use one with a trigger that releases the scoops) or two spoons, scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough and place on the prepared baking sheet. Keep the cookie dough 2 inches apart from each other.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are slightly brown. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
