These cookies are a cake-like version of chocolate chips and are very full of chips and nuts. They are excellent. This isn't originally my recipe, I adopted it. If you need conversions, here they are: ( Thank you Treble :) ) For anyone who needs conversions, here they are: 1 1/4 cup butter, 2/3 cup each brown and white sugars, 1 1/2 tsp.vanilla, 4 cups flour, 1 1/2 tsp. soda, 3/4 tsp. salt, 2 (12 oz) packages chocolate chips, and just under 1 cup walnuts.
- 2⁄3 lb unsalted butter
- 4 1⁄2 ounces brown sugar, firmly packed
- 4 1⁄2 ounces white sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1⁄2 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 lb all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 tablespoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 tablespoon salt
- 1 1⁄4 lbs chocolate chips
- 7 1⁄2 ounces walnuts
- Cream butter and both sugars.
- Add eggs a few at a time mixing after each addition.
- Add vanilla, scrape down and beat until smooth.
- Sift dry ingredients together, add to mixer, mix until almost totally incorporated.
- Add chips and nuts, mix until well combined.
- I use a large ice cream scoop to portion.
- They freeze well unbaked.
- They keep a long time.
- To bake (thaw if frozen), press down to flatten, bake at 350° until done.
- Should be well browned.
- Cooking time will vary considerably depending on cookie size.
Delicious cookie, I used pecans in place of walnuts (didnt have any) I plan to make these again today and freeze them. Full of chocolate and great cake like texture. Thanks for posting.
I also used pecans instead of walnuts. They are easier to come by around here. The cookies are delicious. They are so much better than the typical tollhouse.
I must say that these cookies are fantastic, even though the recipe itself seems like it's incomplete. It's also kind of difficult for those of us who don't own kitchen scales to figure out the ingredient equivalents (thank goodness for internet conversion charts!!) Difficulties aside, these are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had, and they are the only ones I will ever make again! I didn't have any real butter in the house, so I used margarine, and they still came out wonderfully. For anyone who needs conversions, here they are: 1 1/4 cup butter, 2/3 cup each brown and white sugars, 1 1/2 tsp.vanilla, 4 cups flour, 1 1/2 tsp. soda, 3/4 tsp. salt, 2 (12 oz) packages chocolate chips, and just under 1 cup walnuts.
