This recipe is actually called Waldorf Astoria $250 cookies. The story goes, a woman dining there had them for dessert. She asked for the recipe, and the waiter told her that it would cost 250. She said "no problem, put it on my bill." When she got her credit card bill, she saw it was not $2.50, but $250!!!! She called the manager, but he explained that they would not take it off, that was the price, and she now owned the recipe. She said to the manager "That's fine. I will make sure that 'everyone' now has it as well. And so it is. :)
I made these cookies on Monday night with my niece we got 77 cookies quite large they were all gone by Wednesday night! Amazingly chewy great texture and taste slightly crisp on the outside and chewy in the centre. My niece had to mix by hand the nuts and chocolate chips into the batter. We baked them for about 14 minutes to perfection. When they came out of the oven they were still very soft but firmed up nicely out of the oven on a rack in about 5 minutes. My niece is makeing them again on Tuesday, her classmates love them! Thanks, for posting Zuise-Q!
These cookies are awesome. It was the best chocolate chip recipe I've ever tried and honestly I won't need to look for another recipe as this was perfect. Thanks for posting a great recipe!!!
