Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnut halves
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Method

Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper or grease; set aside.

In bowl, beat together butter and brown and granulated sugars until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt ; stir into butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls (15 mL), 2 inches (5 cm) apart, onto prepared baking sheets. With fork, flatten to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 375°F (190°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until edges are golden and centres are still slightly underbaked, 8 to 9 minutes. Let cool on pans on racks for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
