These soft and chewy cookies are loaded with both white and dark chocolate chips. The walnuts add a crunchy texture and nutty flavor that balance the soft cookie and sweetness of the chocolate chips.
The secret to making these chocolate chip cookies so soft is the brown sugar beaten together with butter to create a fluffy base for the cookie dough. Don’t skimp on the beating time! Getting the butter and sugar light and fluffy is really necessary for a soft cookie.
I’ve also made these with semi-sweet chips instead of dark and they just as good. There are lots of different types of baking chips available these days – these cookies would be good to experiment with mixing and matching different types of chips.
