Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies


I love traditional recipes, and chocolate chip cookies are no exception. A long time ago our good family friend Katie, and basically second mom, took care of me when I had the flu. She brought me delicious chocolate chip cookies- and the recipe. I have not used another chocolate chip cookie recipe since that day. Katie subsequently taught me a LOT about baking. I’ve adapted Katie’s cookies in this recipe, but the flavor remains true to her original chocolate chip cookies. I hope you enjoy!


1 stick of unsalted butter
3/4 C brown sugar
3/4 C sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 C semi sweet chocolate chips
1 C dark chocolate chips

1/2 C chopped walnuts

2 1/4 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg


  1. Cream together butter, sugars, and vanilla. Then add eggs.
  2. Add in semi sweet and dark chocolate chips, and walnuts.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. Then add to the butter/egg/sugar mixture.
  4. Use a teaspoon to measure out cookie dough, rolling the dough in your hands and then flattening into rounds. Bake for 9-12 minutes on 350.

If you want to remain true to Katie and I’s history, be sure to eat these up with a cup of constant comment tea. Hungry for more recipes? Explore more at LawyerintheKitchen!
