Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Walnuts

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350º. Spread walnuts out on a baking sheet, and toast them in the oven for 5 minutes. Walnuts become buttery, golden brown, and crunchy after toasting them in the oven. The heat brings out the natural nutty aroma that adds a delightful flavor to these cookies.

Homemade chocolate chip cookie dough

Remove from oven and let cool while making cookies (adding them to the dough while hot will melt your chocolate chips). Stir flour, baking soda, salt, and cornstarch together in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, both sugars, egg, and vanilla together on low speed until light and fluffy. Stir in dry ingredients until just combined. Then add chocolate chips and walnuts, and stir together. Refrigerate for one hour

Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Parchment paper prevents sticking and makes for easy cleanup! Separate dough into 6 balls (they’ll be very big!), and place them on a cookie sheet at least two inches apart. Press additional chocolate chips on top of the cookies if desired.
