1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Cream together butter, white and brown sugar until smooth (I like to spoon mix it). Beat in the eggs one at a time (or together) and then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in the hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in the flour, chocolate chips and nuts if you desire. Drop by large spoonful onto ungreased pans.
3. Bake for about 10 minutes or until edges are nicely browned.
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."
"Your DVO cookbook software saves me time and money!"
"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
