This is my improved version of the "Best-Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies" recipe card I received in the mail years ago. Now they really are the best! *I first made these when I was younger and loved very sweet cookies...now I agree with some reviews, they are too sweet so am adjusting the sugar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  3. At a low speed, beat in flour mixture until blended.
  4. Stir in ground walnuts, oats, chocolate chips and raisins.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 350.
  7. Grease 2 baking sheets.
  8. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly (The bottom of a mug works).
  9. Bake cookies until lightly browned around the edges, 10 to 12 minutes.
  10. Transfer to flattened brown paper bags or wire racks to cool.
  11. This dough also freezes well. Freeze dough balls on a cookie sheet and then put them in a ziploc bag in the freezer until ready to bake!

Fabulous recipe! I would not change a thing. I bake a lot and this one of my most requested cookie recipes.

This is one of the worst recipes I ever made! After following the recipe to the letter, the cookies were dry and crumbly and never really set. I tried to add another egg to the rest of the mix and it was terrible. I ended up throwing everything out - all of those ingredients!!

My cookies turned out flat and crisp. Any suggestions on what I did wrong? They are sweet as the other reviews said, I used 3/4 sugar. Thanks for the help
