Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe taken from Betty Crocker
3/4 cup granulated sugar (1 c.) 
3/4 cup packed brown sugar (1/2 c.) 
1 cup butter or margarine, softened (3/4 c.) 
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour (2 1/2 c. ) 
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (didn’t add that) 
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups) (1 cup) 
  1. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
  3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
Makes 4 dozen cookies
I added good 2 – 3 tsp of water because the dough was dry (stick together when pressed together but still easily crumbled into crumbs) perhaps due to the decrease in butter (as suggested in comments) and increase in flour. Still turned out yumm 🙂 this recipe is a KEEPER!
