Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 large eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups bittersweet or dark chocolate chunks or chips
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


Heat oven to 400ºF. You’ll need an ungreased baking sheet(s).

Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, baking soda and salt with mixer on medium 2 minutes until creamy. Beat in eggs until fluffy. On low speed, beat in flour until blended. Stir in chocolate and nuts.

Drop rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart on baking sheet(s). Bake 8 minutes or until golden. Cool 2 minutes; remove cookies to a rack to cool further. Store airtight up to 1 week.

Plan ahead: Freeze dropped dough on baking sheets; when firm, place in a ziptop bag and freeze. Bake right out of the freezer (add 1 or 2 minutes to baking time).
