Danica’s Famous Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

by DanicasDaily on May 29, 2009

Janetha asked me to post the recipe for the cookies that I always make for The Husband, my family and friends. So, in playing a little catchup since I made THESE a few weeks back, here is the recipe. These are not so low cal and they are insanely addictive!

Danica’s Famous Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie Recipe


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
12 oz bag MILK Chocolate Chips
6 oz bag, DARK Chocolate Chips
1 cup chopped walnuts


1. It’s important to use BOTH margarine & butter to keep the consistency of the cookie. All butter = a runny, flat cookie. All margarine = a hard, crispy cookie, together you get the perfectly crispy, chewy, gooey, LOVELY cookie.

2. Chocolate Chips ~ I LOVE using the giant Guittard Milk Chocolate ones with the Nestle Semi Sweet, however, any brand works ok.


COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl and set aside. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl until blended and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition until well blended. Switch to a wooden spoon and gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 9 to 11 minutes (my oven works perfectly at 10 min and 45 seconds) or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes approximately 5 1/2 dozen (69 cookies), 3 points+ each
