Copycat Chips Ahoy Cookies

How could I not make cookies for a man who takes such awesome pictures?

Marriage is full of compromises. This is my attempt at a compromise between Steven’s desire for boughten chocolate chip cookies and the rebellion that rises in my soul at the very thought of boughten chocolate chip cookies. Recipe from here.

3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
1/8 cup water
6 oz. chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 325F. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars and blend with an electric mixer until smooth. Add salt, vanilla, and baking soda.
2. While beating at low speed, slowly add flour. Once incorporated, add water. Mix thoroughly, adding extra water if necessary to make the dough stick together. Stir in the chocolate chips.
3.Form the cookies by breaking off bits of dough and patting them out with your fingers into 2-inch rounds about 1/8″ thick.*
4. Place the cookies on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 12-18 minutes, or until golden brown. Wait until cool to eat for that coveted boughten cookie texture.

*Don’t try to make them thicker unless you like doughy cookies (which I do but this isn’t about me, right?)
