Chocolate Chip Spiced Walnut Cookies
Don’t these cookies look delicious? I thought so too, that’s why I may or may not have eaten half the batch myself.
We won’t go there.
These cookies are some of the softest chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had, of course partially because I have learned to cook them for a little less time so they stay soft longer. It works, I promise. Probably the best advice I’ve ever gotten about baking cookies. Did you know that trick?
Simply remove your cookies just a minute or two earlier and allow them to cook on the pan, outside of the oven. For whatever reason it actually works. I do it with most cookie recipes. If it says bake for 10 minutes, I bake for about 8. I’m getting better at seeing what the cookie should look like when it is removed. That helps.
But anyway, about these cookies.
They have walnuts. And spices. And chocolate. Who doesn’t love chocolate?
Combine them all together and you have this wonderfully, beautiful cookie that is crave worthy. I promise.
