I've been making these cookies for many years. The recipe originally comes from the Foothill House B&B but I found it in a community cookbook. Refrigerating time is not included in the prep or cook time.
- 1 cup butter

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped walnuts

- Cream together butter and brown sugar; beat in egg and vanilla.
- Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Blend into butter mixture.
- Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
- Refrigerate until firm.
- Preheat oven to 375°.
