I say forget the walnuts because who really has walnuts lying around the house.
½ c. butter
½ c. brown sugar
½ c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/8 c. flour
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda
1 bag (6 oz.) chocolate chips
½ c. walnuts (opt.)
Turn your oven on to 375° F.
In the small pan, melt the butter.
While it's hot, add both sugars. Stir, then let cool a bit.
While the butter mixture is cooling, mix the flour, soda and salt in the mixing bowl.
In the small bowl, beat the egg lightly with a fork, then add the egg and vanilla to the butter mixture. Stir.
Now add the butter, egg and vanilla to the flour mixture in the mixing bowl. Stir again, then add chocolate chips and nuts if you want them.
Stir everything until it's all mixed up well and put the bowl in the refrigerator to cool for about an hour.
When times up, get your cookie sheet - don't grease it.
Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls, put them on the cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
DON'T OVERCOOK! You want your cookies to be moist and chewy.
Take them off the cookie sheet carefully with your spatula and let them cool.
