    Sass Smith's Note:

    This recipe produces rather flat, crispy-on-the-edges cookies, perfect for dunking. I add cocoa nibs for an extra layer of chocolate, but like nuts, these are optional. The recipe is from The Best Recipe cookbook.

    Serves: 20



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Adjust oven racks to upper- and lower-middle positions and preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Whisk flour, salt and baking soda together and set aside.
    3. 3
      If cocoa nibs are not already broken into small pieces (about the size of the chocolate chips) do this now, or better yet get your baking helper to do this.
    4. 4
      Cream butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy, scraping sides of bowl with a spatula as needed.
    5. 5
      Add eggs, vanilla and water. Beat to combine and scrape sides of bowl.
    6. 6
      Add dry ingredients and stir together just until combined.
    7. 7
      Add chocolate chips and cocoa nibs and stir just until combined.
    8. 8
      Use two spoons to drop dough onto cookie sheets, at least 1 inch apart.
    9. 9
      Bake, reversing position of cookie sheets halfway through baking, until cookies are light golden brown but not quite set in the centers, about 8 to 10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Cool on racks.

      These were wonderful and just what I had been craving!!!! Made excellently as written(except no cocoa nibs) and wouldn't change a thing with this recipe. Makes a cookie with nice crispy edges and tender middle. I made about 16 cookies and then put the rest of the dought in the refrigerator to make some more fresh baked cookies on another day. Thanks Sass Smith for a great recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2008.
