Pillowy soft, deliciously thick, and perfect for dunking in a glass of milk, my Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies recipe is my go-to when I’m in need of a quick chocolate fix.

Yielding just 4 large, bakery-sized treats, this small batch of cookies is ideal for my 2-person household. Best of all, you don’t even need to get out your mixer!


All-Purpose Flour Kosher Salt Baking Soda Unsalted Butter Chocolate Chips Walnuts

Step 1: Mix Dough

Mix together the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl.

Add the dry ingredients and stir until everything is combined. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.

Step 2: Chill the dough

Chill the dough for 30 minutes then separate the dough into 4 large cookies total - ball and flatten, top with extra chocolate chips and walnuts if desired.

Step 3: Baking Prep

Prepare your baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the cookies about 4-inches apart on your baking sheets.

Step 4: Bake & Sprinkle

Bake at 350 for 12 minutes or until the edges of cookies are slightly golden - then remove the baked cookies from the oven and top with flaky sea salt while they cool.
