Merry Christmas

Merry (almost) Christmas everyone!
My gift to all of my friends in blog-land is a fantastic "Best Chocolate Chip Cookies" recipe. They have crispy edges and chewy centers. YUM!


* 1 cup butter, softened
* 3/4 cup white sugar
* 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
* 2 eggs
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 3 cups all-purpose flour (I use whole wheat white flour)
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 2 teaspoons hot water
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
* 1 cup chopped walnuts
* 1 cup dried cranberries


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Cream together the 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, cranberries and nuts. Drop by large spoonfuls onto non-greased pans.
3. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
