The Best Chocolate Chip And Walnuts Cookies

Sharing is caring!

The Best Chocolate Chip And Walnuts Cookies recipe out there! This might be a keeper for some of you if you like soft cookies inside and crunchy outside.

Perfectly soft inside, perfectly crunchy on the outside and perfectly delightful, after you try these cookies once, you will never look for another chocolate chip cookie recipe again.

During my chocolate chip cookies research, I found out that the recipes out there aren’t that different at all from each other.

A little more flour, a little less brown sugar, semi sweet chocolate chips or milk chocolate, these little changes result in an entirely different cookie in my opinion.

One glorious addition to the popular chocolate chip cookie in my recipe is the walnuts.

They add more texture to the cookies, but the secret reason I chose to use them is that I love walnuts. I grew up with them.

I remember my grandmother’s back yard in Transylvania and the old walnut tree that provided lots of shade in the summer.

My grandmother used to pick up walnuts from the tree and bake cookies and bars with them.

As Transylvania was for many years under the Austro-Hungarian Empire, there are a lot of influences from the Hungarian, German and Austrian cuisine.

Most of the German, Hungarian or Austrian desserts rely heavily on walnuts, as walnuts grow well and happy in that climate.

Chocolate Chip And Walnuts Cookies

I tried quite a few chocolate chip cookie recipes in the past and many of them were good, but like everyone else when they found THE favorite recipe, I think I found mine as well.

I will stick with it and probably never go back to the ones before.

And how can you not like THESE cookies? I mean, just look at them!

I think they have great shape, the nuts bring crunchiness, the chocolate chips bring heaven in your mouth and the cookie itself is awesome.

However, I always wonder how other people like their chocolate chip cookies.

What makes a chocolate chip cookie perfect? The size? The texture? I personally like these cookies to be soft inside, or even chewy.

Even if you have your own recipe of chocolate chip cookies that you make for years, I still hope you will try this one as well.

Meanwhile, I am going to grab another one, because I cannot help myself. See you next time!

The cookies dough was delicious! But at 1 tbsp/cookie my first batch burnt ?‍♀️ Second batch the over went to 350 for 10 min and they came out a little crisp but pretty good. Next time I’ll make bigger cookies ?‍♀️?

Hi Jac, My recipe says:"Scoop 1/4 cup batter for each cookie about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper." So you need to use a 1/4 cup to measure the dough for each cookie. Then you bake the cookies for 12-16 minutes based on how crunchy or chewy you want them. A tablespoon of dough is very small and the cookies will burn if you bake them for 16 minutes, for example. This recipe makes big cookies, not small ones. If you want to change the size of the cookie you will definitely need to adjust the temperature. Make them again and let me know how they came out this time. These cookies are awesome if you make them right. :-)
