  1. Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with foil, dull side up.
  2. Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt together thoroughly. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the butter, both sugars, corn syrup, milk, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture. Stir in the nuts and chocolate chips. The dough will be very soft.
  4. Divide the dough in half. Divide one half of the dough into 10 equal pieces (each a scant 1/4 cup). Place 5 pieces of dough least 3 inches apart on each lined baking sheet. Use your fingers covered with a piece of plastic wrap to flatten each scoop until it is 3 inches in diameter. (Cookies will spread even more as they bake).
  5. Bake the two sheets for 8 minutes. Rotate the sheets from the top rack to the bottom and from front to back. Bake for 7-10 more minutes, watching closely, until the cookies are evenly dark golden brown all over. (Pale cookies will not be crispy). Let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Slide the foil with cookies onto racks. When the baking sheets are cool, repeat with the remaining dough. Cool cookies completely before stacking or storing. Cookies keep, in an airtight container for at least 5 days.

How do you get 16 cookies/servings out of this if you divide the dough in half and make 10 cookies from each? Before I make them I just need to know how many calories in each. I can't trust the ...

They were flat on the edges and puffier in the middle. Nothing like the picture. I added 2 tbs more flour to the rest of the batter. They came out a little too thick and had a flour taste. G...

Nice cookies! I just wish there was a less buttery version of this... I might replace some butter with almond butter next time, it might be healthier ...and still crunchy hopefully!

These super delicious cookies came out just as described. I followed the recipe exactly besides the confusing bowl to baking sheet instructions. I simply rolled 1" balls from a spoon with gloved...

Followed this to the letter and they were a gloppy mess.

Excellent!! Actually made with no changes...seriously a must to bake.

Crispy and delicious but the chocolate from the Ghirardelli is almost too overwhelming. I followed the recipe almost exactly and the came out crispy and light. I had to leave them in the oven fo...
