So I went into my (larger) kitchen and whipped up these bad boys who have never failed me. Seriously, I have made them at different elevations and they have turned out perfect every single time.
1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup shortening (we use coconut oil instead)
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls unto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-11 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.
Yields: 5 dozen
No one ended up coming over, but Georgie followed Scott's lead in dunking her cookies in milk.
I just love cookies.
