  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter with the white and brown sugars using an electric mixer at medium speed until the mixture is creamy and lightened in color, about 4 minutes. Add the vanilla and eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed until incorporated.
  3. Gradually blend the flour mixture into the creamed mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by the tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown. Transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool. Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.


  • Variation:
  • Substitute Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet or 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips for the Milk Chocolate Chips

Boo Hiss. Cookies turned out flat and gushy. We had to eat them with a spoon over ice cream. Disappointing.

While I definitely prefer using semi-sweet chocolate chips, the milk chocolate ones were decent in a cookie. Also, my rule with many cookie recipes that have a higher butter to flour ratio is: ...
