Level:
Easy

Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and two sugars until light and fluffy in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the vanilla, then the eggs, one at a time, and mix well. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the butter with the mixer on low speed, mixing only until combined. Fold in the walnuts and chocolate chunks.

Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a 1 3/4-inch-diameter ice cream scoop or a rounded tablespoon. Dampen your hands and flatten the dough slightly. Bake for exactly 15 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone). Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

The BEST cookie I ever had. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious cookies, my mom has used this recipe ever since I can remember and now it's one of my classics as well. Added 1/2 cup of sweetened shredded coconut and a couple less chocolate chips this time just to try it and they were amazing, although they seemed a little fluffier than usual, not sure why that is. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! If you substitute the walnuts for mini marshmallows they become s'more cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy... Made with chocolate chips ... Small ones .....but followed everything else as per recipe. It takes 15 mins to get a nice crunchy outside and gooey inside. Got 28 cookies by using 1 tbsp measure for each cookie and from half the quantities mentioned in the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these cookies for a meeting. The mixture of the cake seemed not a lot for 36 to 40 cookies. Apparently i used a small tablespoon to place on the baking tray. I baked it and suddenly the cookies went very large, like cookies you buy in the shops! Maybe it is due to the 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda. The disadvantage is the cookies are very flat and apparently mine stick into the tray. I greased it and nothing worked! I done this in batches. For this batter it can make more than 40 cookies, probably 60 good size cookies. I took the cookies out of the tray, some started falling apart, I cooked it for 15 minutes. But everyone at my meeting loved it, also I used leftover cookie dough to bake for my family. EVERYONE POLISHED IT! Delicious cookies, but the downside it it sticks into the tray. Rate 3 because of that. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These came out perfect!!!! Don't pass the 15 min item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely perfect. Baked at 350 for exactly 15 minutes. I used an oven thermometer to ensure my oven was at 350. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I typically don't comment on a recipe unless I've followed the recipe to the letter but I only made one slight revision. I used a 12oz bag of semi-sweet chips in lieu of the chunks. Had several bags of chips in pantry but no chunks. They turned out perfect and I received rave reviews. Already have a request for another batch. Thanks Ina, love ya! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy cookies! I used morsels instead of chunks and I left out the nuts. Per the other reviews, I cooked the cookies for 9-10 minutes. They came out perfect. I will definitely make them again! Super easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Try using a flat spatula and take the cookies out of the tray when still warm. Doesnt stick. I used sheet tray with no spray or paper lining. item not reviewed by moderator and published
