The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

I think every family has a special recipe for some kind of cookie. Well these cookies have been in my family for years and years. They came from a family friend who used to work in a bakery. They are chewy and stay that way for days as long as you keep them in a air tight container. I believe the key is that we add extra flour to the dough. You can also omit the nuts in this recipe but I really think they are delicious in this. Whenever I make these, they are gone within a couple of days.

If you have a favorite cookie recipe you would like to share, we would love to hear about it! Just leave a comment and maybe we'll try it!

"Steve's" Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 Cups Flour
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Cup (2 sticks) unsalted Butter
3/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Packed Dark Brown Sugar
1 Tsp. Vanilla
2 Eggs
1 12 oz. Package Dark Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts

About 3/4 to 1 cup more of Flour

Preheat oven to 375˚. Melt butter in microwave. Let cool completely (I like to just put the bowl of butter in the freezer for about 5 minutes). While butter is cooling, combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl (set aside). Beat (melted, cooled) butter, sugar, brown sugar & vanilla in a larger bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Gradually add flour mixture in increments. (Take some time here to lick the mixers, yum!) Stir in chocolate chips & nuts. Add more flour until not tacky. You want to be able to roll the dough in your hands without it sticking much. Roll the dough in your hands and drop on an air bake cookie sheet. Bake at 375˚ for 9-11 minutes. Be careful not to overcook! These are not supposed to be a dark brown, but a light color when they come out of the oven. Enjoy!!
