Not Your Average Cookie.

What's so special about this cookie? Not much, beside the fact that you use Reese Cups in these cookies instead of chocolate chips! Maybe it is only me, but I think when you bake Reese Cups in a dessert, they practically take the flavor out of them.?? I still will take Reese in anything, I personally think they taste best simply as a "Reese Cup".

"Best Chocolate Chip Cookies"

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. hot water

1/2 tsp. salt

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used about 1-1/2 cups Reese Cups, chopped)

1 cup chopped walnuts (optional) - I never add these


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans. Bake for about 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
I knew Lewis was weird, but this weird??
