Walnut Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies


12.14.09 by sarah

It’s Christmas cookie season again. Which means I’m pretty much baking non-stop. Honestly, I’m not going to want to even look at cookies for the next two months… so enjoy this while it lasts.

This is a personally altered twist on Dorie Greenspans’s best chocolate chip cookies. I have little to say, other than they make amazing Christmas presents.

Preheated oven to 350 degrees
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1-1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground cloves
2 large eggs
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
4-8 ounces chopped walnuts
Combine the flour, salt, baking soda, sugars, cinnamon, and cloves in a large mixing bowl. Stir with a whisk until fluffy and evenly mixed, then add butter and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer for two minutes until smooth. Then, fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Place round tablespoons of dough onto a baking sheet, about two inches apart from each other. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, then remove from the oven, and let cool.
