There is already another recipe posted on this site with the name "Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies" but these are different. It all started when I was trying to make a friend's recipe that called for softened butter. I inadvertently melted the butter on top of the stove but used it anyway -- a very happy accident. Prep time includes chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Melt butter and cool to room temperature in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add sugars; cream together. Add eggs and vanilla.
  4. Combine dry ingredients; add to butter mixture. Mix with a spoon until blended.
  5. Add chips and nuts; stir.
  6. Chill batter for about an hour. Do not skip this step! It is necessary so that the cookies will not flatten while baking.
  7. Drop by large tablespoons onto 2 ungreased jelly roll pans (10 by 15 inches each).
  8. Bake about 8-10 minutes.
