Behind on my Cookie Weeklies!

I'm just having too much fun to blog! 1st week of Tuesday Night music on the Plaza and our friends were in town from Maui - I'm trying to even remember what cookies I made it was so long ago... will get back to that later. Second week we had Sarah all to ourselves and we made some odd cookies - green tea madelines - I won't bother with that recipe - I wasn't in love. This last tuesday I made these - and it was love. Probably didn't hurt that I sandwiched them between an oozing blob of Malted Milk Chocolate ice cream - only hurts if you missed this last tuesday night!
Chocolate Chip Cookies about 48

2 and 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups chopped nuts - this week I had fresh walnuts!
14 oz of bittersweet chocolate chunks about 3 cups (I used 70% TCHO Pro drops - this was great as I put them in whole and then when the cookie dough was sliced it made these great lines of chocolate)

Whisk together the flour, salt and soda in a small bowl. In a mixer place the butter and beat in the sugars until smooth. Add in the eggs one at a time and then the vanilla until all mixed. Finally mix in the nuts and chocolate chips then divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll each into a 8 in log. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate over night or freeze until you are ready to bake. To bake slice into about 3/4 inch disks and bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 min. I like them a little soft so just watch them. Just as good without ice cream in the middle : )
