Who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie?
Okay, who doesn’t love one with walnuts?
And finally, who doesn’t love eating straight cookie dough?
Answer: Everyone loves it or at least I do 🙂
So to recap, I LOVE me some chocolate chips cookies and so does Mike. He has been looking forward to the recipe because that means he can eat all of the cookies and not share. Which is fine with me because I really shouldn’t be trying to eat all the cookies anyways 🙂
This recipe was really straight forward, and DAMN the cookie dough was fantastic. I could have sat there all day and just eaten straight out of the bowl. The trick to baking these was finding the right amount of time to keep them in the oven. At 12 minutes it was a little too brown for my taste. At 11 minutes it was more of my style and taste, and Mike preferred the 10 minute mark. But all of the cookies tasted fantastic no matter what. I love the vanilla flavor. I actually used a Mexican Vanilla, which was very tasty. I stood by my go to chocolate chips, Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips, and used finely chopped walnuts.
All I have to say is yummy 🙂
