Here is the recipe. For the record, Joni was the one that would always make the most tasty chocolate-chip cookies. She gave me the recipe and I did minor adjustments to the cookie you had last night. That being said, enjoy this as often and as much as possible.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Dallas and Joni
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C butter (salted)
1/2 C margarine (cheapest yellow tub kind you can find)
1 large egg
1 T hot water
1 t vanilla
2 1/4 C all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
1 T baking soda
1 bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven at 375º.
Place butter on counter for at least 45 minutes to soften.
Beat sugar, butter, vanilla, egg, water, in large bowl with electric hand-mixer on medium speed. Mix until completely smooth. With same hand-mixer, mix in flour, baking soda, and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips with large wooden spoon.
For smooth cookie look, round a ball of dough by tablespoon about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake first round at 8:30. Bake second and third at 8 mins.
