Dessert-Chocolate Chip Cookies

You know, here I am again with a dessert to share from the newspaper. Yes, I am the one on a diet, but sweets are my weakness as you are aware of by now. I have two cookies recipes to share from the paper. The other recipe will be posted tomorrow. I have to go and watch Dancing With the Stars!

1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon water
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (12) ounce) package chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat well. Mix in vanilla and water. Mix dry ingredients, and add to sugar-butter mixture. Mix well, but do not over beat. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls or larger onto lightly greased or sprayed cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 to 15 minutes. If you like soft cookies, cook for 2 to 3 minutes less.
