This was the first cookie recipe I made outside Home Ec class. I was in high school. We had a tiny, tiny kitchen with an apartment sized stove. My mom wasn't into cooking at all and didn't have baking sheets, so cookies got baked in a couple of pie tins, four at a time. I clipped this from the Nestle chocolate chip wrapper so many years ago. The recipe now is different.
- add 1/4 teaspoon water
- add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- add 1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts
- add 6 ounces nestle semisweet chocolate morsels (1 cup)
- add 1 large egg
- add 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
- add 1 cup flour
- add 1/2 teaspoon salt
- add 6 tablespoons brown sugar, packed (I use dark)
- add 1/2 cup softened margarine
- Sift together flour, soda and salt.
- Set aside.
- Combine margarine, sugars, vanilla and water.
- Beat until creamy.
- Beat in egg.
- Add flour mixture and mix well.
- Stir in chocolate and nuts.
- Drop well rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet.
- Bake 10-12 minutes at 375°F.
