Ingredients

  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 cup eggs
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Preparation

Baking Directions:

1.

Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

2.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until thoroughly combined.

Beat in the eggs, molasses and vanilla, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice as necessary.

Stir in the flour mixture until just incorporated.

Then stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.

Place the bowl in the refrigerator and allow the dough to chill for 1 hour.

3.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Line several baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat pads.

4.

Drop heaping tablespoons or #40 ice-cream scoops of the dough 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets, flattening them slightly by hand.

5.

Bake until just light golden, 8 to 10 minutes.

Cool the cookies for 5 minutes on the baking sheets before using a metal spatula to transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips:

Chocolate Chip Cookies will keep in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days.
