These are the best Chocolate Chip Cookies you will ever eat. That is saying a lot coming from someone who doesn’t particularly care for sweets. They are packed full of chocolate, walnuts, and are ooey-gooey throughout.
I spent the day with one of my daughters recently and we spent the day cooking…look for several new recipes in the near future! These Chocolate Chip Cookies were one of the recipes we made. You might want to double the recipe because they don’t last long in a house full of sweet eaters.
In a small bowl, mix together the flour, salt, corn starch, and baking soda. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter that has been diced into small cubes, white sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. At low speed, mix until everything is well combined. If you do not have a stand mixer, you can also use a handheld mixer.
Slowly add the flour and continue to mix until it just comes together. Do not overmix. This is a very dry dough. You will think you need to add a liquid of some type. Resist the urge! These come out beautifully when baked.
Add the chocolate chips and walnuts. Mix until everything is incorporated.
Form into 1 1/2 inch balls and place them on the baking sheets that have been lined with parchment paper. You should get approximately 18 chocolate chip cookies depending on the size you make them.
Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for 6-7 minutes until golden brown.
