Start with chocolate chips. Bake a batch. Add more ingredients. Bake another batch. Add more. Bake more. Can't stop eating the cookies!
Sift together flour, soda, and salt.
Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and water.
Beat until creamy with whisk.
Add flour mixture and mix well
Stir in chocolate chips (I did not add nuts, but add them now if you choose to include them.)
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet (I use insulated cookie sheets and don't grease them.)
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes (or 9 to 10 minutes in a propane oven).
Bake the recipe for the chocolate chip cookies.
Then add the second batch ingredients and bake them.
Add the fourth batch ingredient and bake.
