I adapted this recipe from one in ‘ the essential chocolate chip cookbook’ ( an essential book to own !) The recipe is called ‘ chock-full of chocolate chip cookies’ and it clls for 4 cups of chocolate chips!!! That’s a lot of chips. So I thought to mix it up a bit with varying chips and some walnuts. These are damn good cookies…
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup ( 1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temp
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
6 tblsp granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
> Preheat oven to 350 degrees
> Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
> Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl and set aside.
> In a large bowl, using and electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smoothly blended. Stop the mixer and scrape the sides of the bowl as needed during mixing. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until blended. On low speed, add the flour mixture, mixing just until incorporated. Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts until evenly ditributed.
> Use and ice cream scoop to drop perfectly round, half spheres of dough onto the prepared sheets. Space the cookies about 3 inches apart. they don’t spread a lot but these cookies need their own space.
> Bake for about 15 minutes. It depends on whether you like chewy or crispy. Check at 13 minutes and gauge by the browness. Lightly golden or brown… Soft or crisp.
