Contributed By: Terry Borden


1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts


In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add
eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Combine
flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in
chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart onto
lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or
until light brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Helpful Hints:

If you like, leave out the nuts and double the chocolate chips.
Makes 3 dozen.
