|chef moilene, who knows good eatin' the world over, sent this one.
This is too good not to share. The recipe came from Olive's sandwich shop in SoHo in New York. I made them and they are the best! I did not put the walnuts in.
Makes about 20
2 cups all purpose flour
Whisk first 5 ingredients in medium bowl to blend. Using electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating to combine. Add dry ingredients and beat until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts. Cover dough and chill one hour. (can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled. Let soften slightly before continuing).
Arrange 2 racks in the center of the oven; preheat to 350 degrees F.
Butter 2 baking sheets. Form dough into balls, using a 1/4 cup dough
for each. Place on prepared sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.
Flatten with hand to 3 1/2 inch rounds. Bake 10 minutes, then rotate
sheets. Bake until cookies are golden brown around edges and firm
in the center, about 4 minutes longer. Cool on sheet 5 minutes.
Transfer to racks to cool completely. (Can be made one week ahead.
Store airtight at room temperature).
