Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my go to recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are crispy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle and oh so good.

1 1/2 sticks of butter
1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk (the extra yolk keeps your cookie chewy but not greasy)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bag chocolate chips (I like to chop mine up a bit, it makes the cookies have a better texture.)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 335* then cream together; butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Then mix in flour, baking soda and salt. After that is all well combined stir in chocolate chips and walnuts. Use a hand squeeze cookies scoop to spoon cookies on to cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 mins until cookies are just done, they should be lightly golden around the edges but soft in the center. Transfer to a cooling rack and once cooled keep in an air tight container.....if you have any left over. :)


  1. Looks yummy--I don't suppose you'll have any left when you get here, right? No worries--I have chocolate chips!

  2. I always use the same recipe on the back of the nestle bag, but I would love to try this with your tweeks. I LOVE chocolate chip cookies, but I don't make them very often ( like, it's been two years) because Andrew doesn't like chocolate chips. WHAT!!! .....I'm serious.
