I made Barbara Bush’s Chocolate Cookies at home today. It’s a simple and easy recipe that you can make in your own kitchen! Isn’t it wonderful that we can make cookies that a First Lady once made for her family? You can watch the video right here https://youtu.be/WNXtq7C7i8E
Barbara Bush’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
½ cup butter, softened
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
⅓ cup white sugar
1 ½ teaspoons hot water
1 ⅛ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and egg until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in hot water and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour, baking soda, and salt, until well blended and smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by well-rounded teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 minute, or until golden. Cool cookie sheet on a wire rack for 1 minutes, then remove cookies to a rack to cool completely.
***I baked just a few minutes longer because my husband loves well done/brown bottom cookies 🍪❤️
