Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

In our household the crisp cookies are eaten, but it's the soft cookies that are loved. Especially soft chocolate chip cookies! I have a favorite recipe that I typically make (yes I've posted it before) but I've got a few others that I've loved for years. One of those is a copycat of the tiny little 1 inch soft batch cookies made by little elves. LOL.

I first made these back in 1996. I haven't thought about them or made these in probably four years or so. Maybe it's time I whip a batch up again!

Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

4 sticks butter, soft (1 pound)
2 eggs
2 T molasses
2 t vanilla extract
1/3 c water
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 1/2 c white granulated sugar
1 t baking powder
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 t salt
5 c flour
6 oz. bag of mini chocolate chips

Cream the butter, eggs, molasses, vanilla nd water in a bowl. Combine the dry ingredients and blend the two. Add the chocolate chips last. Shape into 1 inch balls and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet (or lightly greased). Flatten just slightly and bake at 375 for approximately 8 minutes until golden around the edges.
