Gourmet chocolate chip cookies

Yield: 3 Dozen

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Butter (unsalted), softened
1 cup Dark brown sugar, packed
1 cup Light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
2 larges Eggs
2 tablespoons Coriander, ground (optional)
1 teaspoon Baking powder, double-acting
2½ cup Flour, unbleached
1½ teaspoon Salt
4 cups Walnuts, coarsely chopped
3 cups Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream butter in a large bowl. Beat in the sugar, a little at a time; beat until light. Stir in vanilla extract. Beat in eggs, one at a time.

Stir salt into flour and add to batter. Add nuts and chocolate chips.

Chill batter for an hour and drop by ¼ C measures 3" apart on buttered baking sheets. Bake in the middle of a 375 degree F. oven for 12 to

15 minutes; cool on rack.


* This recipe is adapted from one that was in _Gourmet_ magazine almost 15 years ago. (I've NEVER used the coriander.) The original recipe also said to drop by ⅓ C measures and THEN chill the dough.

I just didn't have room in the fridge ;-> And the cookies are still huge when I use the ¼ Cup to spoon 'em out...

* Will use approximately 16 oz. of nuts and 18 oz. of chips.
