Missionary Drop Cookies


1 cup butter
3/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp soda (dissolved in
2 Tbl hot water)

2 1/2 cups flour
12 oz semi-sweet
chocolate pieces
1 cup nuts

Cream together butter and sugars; add egg, add soda, add vanilla, add flour and salt, add chocolate and nuts (mix after each addition, this dough will be very dry and stiff). Using a spoon, drop spoon-sized pieces of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Note: These cookies are among the best I have eaten.
