This is a large recipe I justed to make all the time just for the freezer( for 312 cookies). Today while cleaning the freezer I found some chocolate packages I had gotten some on sale while others were left over from other recipes (white chocolate) so I decided to make a batch. I did not have any nuts so did not use them.
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
3 cups butter or margarine
1 12/ teaspoons hot water
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon salt
6 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 large packages (12 0z.each chocolate ships)
2 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
Cream the sugars and butter or margarine until smooth.
Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Stir in water, vanilla and salt
Add flour and mix well until blended.
Mix in chocolate ships.
Drop by a small spoonful on greased sheet.
Bake in 275 degree oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
