Good Ol’ Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies

March 3, 2015

Happy Tuesday folks!  Wow, have I been slack!  At least on the blog.  Everything else I do hasn’t slowed down any.  Including trying to survive this brutally cold winter which is what brought on a craving for one of my favorite comfort foods, homemade chocolate chip cookies.  These have been Cookie Connoisseur Brian approved (my younger brother) which is saying a lot because he won’t eat just any old cookie.  I hope you enjoy!

3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. hot water
½ tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips

  5. Stir in the flour, mix very well.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips, mix well.
  7. Drop by large spoonfuls onto greased baking pan
