Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Turn off heat and add both sugars; whisk until combined. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl, and let cool to room temperature.

  • Whisk egg, egg yolk, and vanilla into butter mixture. Fold in reserved flour mixture until just combined. Fold in chips and nuts. Wrap dough in plastic; refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Using two large spoons, place golf-ball-size mounds of dough 3 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake until cookies are golden brown and the tops no longer look wet, 12 to 14 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack. Let cool completely before serving.
