FINALLY!!!! The weekend is here, with a busy week behind me I decided to whip up this delicious chocolate chip & walnut cookies recipe, which a friend of mine shared with me.
This must be the easiest chocolate chip cookie recipe I have ever made. My previous cookies always turned thin and very crispy, but this recipe is easy to follow and I promise it will come out just right.
Chocolate chip & walnut cookies
I intentionally make these cookies thicker, because we love how chunky and soft they turn out. My favorite way to eat them is with a glass of cold iced coffee or dip them in cold milk.
Jasmine was so excited to help me finish them up, so I let her add the chocolate chips and scoop the dough onto the baking sheet.
You can make 48 cookies with this recipe, but because we made ours so chunky we made only two dozen. I also cut down on the sugar, adding only 1/2 cup of white and brown sugar was plenty for us and the cookies tasted delicious.
And since I love making recipe cards, I made a two card / per page template with the recipe included. Download the .pdf right [HERE]. This way you can print & cut one card for yourself, and share the other card with a friend.
