Sometimes you have to take the sweet with the sour. These cookies are the best with a large glass of lemonade.
I’m not sure where I got this recipe, or the identity of Kay Roy, but I do know that these are better than any chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever eaten, including Tollhouse and Mrs. Fields. It might be the vanilla. Drop a batch in the oven and let me know what you think.
3/4 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
Cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients until well mixed. Drop by rounded teaspoons on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
