I'm quite new to baking, around three to four months or so... I have a friend that is really good with baking and we made cookies, which turned out PERFECT. Ever since then I tried making cookies myself. But nothing would work. I can't afford an electronic mixer or even quality measuring tools so it's really hard for me. And I tried five recipes for the past three days and NONE OF THEM WOULD WORK! Today, (after finding this recipe) I dumped my cookie dough because it wasn't good enough. I have a hard time telling if they're done or not so... After I made a batch of cookies using this recipe, I was absolutely stunned, especially with the loss of egg in the recipe. I don't do a lot of baking because no one will eat it. My mum doesn't like cookies that much and she will only eat it if it's soft cookies, but I like CRISPY cookies...... NOW I CAN BAKE THE PERFECT COOKIE BC OF THIS RECIPE!!! Though I had a problem taking it off the parchment paper but other than that I'm good. HAHAHA!

- 1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz.)
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 1. In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well blended. Beat in 3 tablespoons water and the vanilla until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
- 2. In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir or beat into butter mixture until well incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans, if using.
- 3. Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions, 2 inches apart, onto buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
- 4. Bake in a 300° oven until edges of cookies are browned, but an area about 1-inch wide in the center is still pale, about 14 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking.
- 5. With a wide spatula, transfer cookies to racks to cool. If hot cookies start to break, slide a thin spatula under them to release; let stand on pan to firm up, 2 to 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
