LEVAIN BAKERY CHOCOLATE CHIP WALNUT COOKIES
Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups dark brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon table salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, mix together butter and sugar on low speed until blended.
Add eggs, one at a time, and beat on low speed until incorporated.
Add flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and mix until just combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips and nuts.
Scoop 2 heaping tablespoons of cookie dough onto parchment lined baking sheet 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake 15-20 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the tops are just lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks and store in an airtight container.
Hands down, my favorite cookie in the whole world is the classic chocolate chip walnut cookie. Apparently this Levain Bakery makes some mind blowing version but since I can't fly out to NYC to try them out first hand, making a clone that folks swear by is the next best thing. There are a few variations of this clone recipe, but I adapted a version I got from another blog. Maybe one of these days I'll make another batch and take some with me to NYC for a true taste test...
