Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

 I’m old school. I prefer a good old Toll House cookie to the new fangled  giant half raw cookies popping up all over Utah. There are cookie/soda shops on every corner. Not one of them has a decent cookie, although there are lines that wind around the building indicating not everyone shares my opinion. A good cookie has a crunchy edge and a soft center. It tastes buttery and not too sweet.  And it is warm, or at room temperature, not straight out of a refrigerator. This recipe is close to the Tollhouse version.  I’ve tried many many cookie recipes, and i still come back to this one.  Ingredients 1 cup butter at room temperature  3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon water 2 1/4 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 1/4 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips (Optional) 1/2 cup chopped nuts  Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Whisk together to combine. Set aside.  Beat butter, granulate
