Big Bon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dear Children,

These are dad's favorite chocolate chip cookies.  After 24 years of marriage, he still argues with me that milk chocolate chips are better than semi-sweet.  And walnuts, he loves walnuts!  No other nuts will do!

Hope you can share this with your children's children someday.  


ps- always use a digital scale to measure out baking ingredients.  It's better than measuring by volume and your baked goods will always be consistent.  Purchase scales that can measure both in grams and ounces.  

This recipe will make about 4 dozens cookies

Big Bon Chocolate Chip Cookies 

3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated sugar
3/4 cup (150 grams) packed dark brown sugar
1 cup (227 grams) unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 1/4 cups (281 grams) all-purpose, unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 package (12 ounces) milk chocolate or semi sweet chips (2 cups)

Heat oven to 375ºF.
With a hand mixer, lightly beat sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl.
Fold in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff).
Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft).
Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
