Makes 12 yummy cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

· 1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick)

· 1/4 cup white sugar

· 1/4 cup packed DARK brown sugar (dark, not light)

· 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

· 1 tablespoon water

· 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

· 1/4 teaspoon salt

· 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

· 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

· 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).

2. Soften butter (NOT melted) by placing in microwave for about 20 seconds.

3. In a large bowl, mix together the butter, white sugar, and DARK brown sugar using a big spoon until it is very smooth and well combined. It will feel like thick wet sand.

4. Add the vanilla, water, and oil. Mix together. It will now thin out.

5. Add the salt and baking soda. Mix together.

6. Add the flour. Mix together with the spoon (or your hand) until it is all incorporated into a smooth dough.

7. Add the chocolate chips. Mix together .

8. Drop a heaping tablespoon of the dough about 2 inches (5 cm) apart onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You should get 12 round dough balls.

9. Bake for 9-11 minutes on the top rack. Do not over bake.

10. Remove cookies from the oven. They will be very soft and may look like they need to bake longer, but they do NOT . If you prefer to flatten them a bit, you can gently press on them with a spatula. Let cool so they firm up a bit. Enjoy! You can save the parchment paper for reuse.
