A few weeks ago I taunted my Instagram followers with videos of my baking. This resulted in multiple messages of people who could no longer live in a world where they had to watch me bake a cookie…and eat it on video. Head on over to my Instagram to see the videos that go with this recipe. Now, without further adieu, I give you the recipe for a cookie that will make your stomach sing with delight.
Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temp. (if using salted butter, eliminate salt from recipe)
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips (I prefer dark or semisweet chips)
2 cups chopped walnuts
Mixer & flat beater
Measuring cups & spoons
Ice cream scoop
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt into large bowl and set aside.
Add butter to mixing bowl and mix until creamy.
Add white sugar and brown sugar to butter, mixing until smooth.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until well-blended.
Add vanilla extract.
Retrieve bowl with flour mixture and begin adding to the mixing bowl slowly. Blend well between additions.
Once mixture is fully blended, add chocolate chips and walnuts to mixing bowl. Blend carefully, your bowl will be heavy at this point.
Place parchment paper on baking sheets. Use an ice cream scoop to spoon cookie dough on the paper, leaving about 2 inches between scoops of dough.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, the center should be slightly underdone.
Allow cookies to remain on hot pan for another 2 minutes and then move them to a cooling rack.
Superhero Tip: you can substitute another favorite nut in place of walnuts. I am a huge fan of the macadamia nut, thanks to my Hawai’i birthplace. If I use macadamia nuts, I usually substitute the chocolate chips for white chocolate.
Second Superhero Tip: instead of using chocolate chips in the dough, melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the cookies once they are finished baking. It tastes delicious and makes you look like a professional!
