Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Set the dry ingredients aside.
  3. Mix the sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in another large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients slowly and stir until combined. This will ensure you have a thorough mixture.
  5. Using a large spoon or flat spatula, fold in crushed nuts and chocolate chips.
  6. Using two teaspoons or cookie scoop, drop cookie batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Keep two inches between each cookie dough ball.
  7. Bake the cookies in the oven for eight to 10 minutes. The cookies should be a light brown color and have soft centers when done.
  8. Allow the cookies to rest for two minutes after removing them from the oven.
  9. Using a spatula, transfer the cookies from the cookie sheet to a wire cooling rack.
  10. Place cookies in an airtight container. The cookies will keep for up to one week.

Baking tips:

  • When you have your cookie batter completely mixed, place the dough in the refrigerator. Allowing the dough to chill for 24 hours will make it easier to work with when scooping out your cookies. This will also give the moist ingredients time to soak through the cookie batter.
  • For flavor variations, use peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips or chocolate candies in place of the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Placing cookies in a freezer-safe container or storage bag allows you to place baked cookies in the freezer for up to six months. Simply remove the cookies as you wish to serve them.
