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.

Anyway.

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.

    Nicole, I LOVE your stunning photos. The cookies look so beautiful and tantalizing, cooling on the wire racks, with the sun streaming in through the window. It’s so idyllic. I wish I were there with you, enjoying these cookies and washing it down with a big glass of cold milk. These cookies sound delicious – I love the mix of spices in them. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thanks for the linky party too – so fun!

      Aw, Nancy thank you. They looked really pretty cooling which is why I didn’t do much with them styling wise, I just liked how they looked on the racks. haha
      I wish you were here too enjoying cookies with me. We’d have so much fun.
      Thanks!

    These cookies look and sound awesome! I love a soft cookie too and I always let my cookies rest for 5 minutes in the sheet pan after taking them out of the oven – they turn out perfect every time =)

    I always wondered why more people don’t spice up chocolate chip cookies. I love cinnamon in them and I’m dying to try your version with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice! They look perfect…chewy, crunchy and gooey!

      I love to play with flavors in cookies, I’m glad I’m not alone. I mean, I love a good chocolate chip cookie, but I adore a chocolate chip cookie with some rich or unique flavors.
      Thanks Lisa!
