But did you know they changed the recipe? What happened to the water?
The original recipe has all the same ingredients, plus 1/2 tsp. water
Does it make a difference? Depends on the size of your eggs…smaller eggs need the water; extra large – maybe not. With more liquid, the cookies are flatter and crisper. But, these cookies are great either way. And, you’ll feel better eating one – even if your team lost.
- 2 1/4 cups sifted flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup softened butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. water
- 2 eggs
- 1 package semi-sweet real chocolate morsels
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Cream butter with sugars, vanilla and water. Beat in eggs. Add flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.. Drop by well-rounded half-teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
I’m so glad to see the info about the water! I thought I was really losing it because I was sure there was water in that recipe. And I always wondered what difference could a mere 1/2 tsp. make. Thanks for clearing that up!
Both ways, they are really good.
