A cookie that is full bodied with flavor. My granddaughter and daughter's worksite request these as: "We need some of 'Grandma's cookies'".
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 eggs
- 8 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 3 cups chopped walnuts
- 2 cups candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
Beat butter, sugars and vanilla in a huge bowl. Beat eggs WELL and add to flour mixture. Mix flour mixture into butter mixture and stir well.
Add the semi-sweet chocolate pieces and walnuts. Mix well.
Drop by rounded tablespoons on ungreased baking sheets. (I lightly push about 4-6 plain M and M's on top of each cookie for flavor and color.)
Bake for 11 minutes. Don't overbake or they get hard. Let cool on wire racks. Enjoy!
