Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies (Missouri)

This recipe for chocolate chip walnut cookies is my Mom’s, and is the standard by which I measure all cookies! I like them crispy on the edges and soft in the middle, and a good mix of sweet and saltiness. My Mom and I are both Missouri born and raised, so it’s perfectly fitting that these cookies includes walnuts! Walnuts are a native nut for our state, and walnut trees thrive here.

One thought on “Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies (Missouri)

  1. Sage

    It took me 20 minutes to prepare. Maybe if you have all the ingredients already out and/or measured it would take 15 min. It made 31 cookies, not the 2 dozen. These are pretty sugary sweet cookies. I’d cut the amount of sugar, increase the amount of chocolate chips and walnuts. Not a favorite recipe.
