Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies {copycat}

This is my second favorite recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies (my favorite is Emeril Lagasse’s Big Chocolate Chip Cookies) However, when I want BIG, THICK cookies this is my go-to.

Recipe adapted from modernhoney.com

Makes 8 large cookies

Preheat oven to 410 degrees (I prefer 350 so the cookies cook in the middle, otherwise they will be gooey in the middle).

Beat until creamy:

  • 1 cup cold butter cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar (I prefer 3/4 cup brown and 3/4 cup white)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (my addition)

Add one at a time until mixed in:

  • 2 eggs

Sift in:

  • 1.5 cups cake flour (or all purpose flour is fine)
  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Stir in:

  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 cups walnuts roughly chopped
  1. Separate dough into large balls and place on lightly colored cookie sheet (about 4 cookies will fit on one large cookie sheet).
  2. Bake for 9-12 (15 minutes for lower temp) or until golden brown on the top. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes to set.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together cold cubed butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 4 minutes or until creamy.

5

In a separate bowl sift or whisk together flours, cornstarch and baking soda; add to mixing bowl and blend,

6

Separate dough into large balls and place on lightly colored cookie sheet. They are bigger than you think! You will fit 4 cookies on one large cookie sheet. The dough makes 8 extra large cookies. (I prefer to make them smaller - about 6 cookies per cookie sheet).
