  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • ¾ cup lightly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp table salt
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Add butter and sugars to stand mixer.  Cream together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Begin on low speed, and gradually work up to medium speed.

  3. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl with spatula.  Add in eggs.  Mix on medium speed until incorporated.

  4. Add in cake flour, all purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt.  Mix on the lowest speed until the flour is just incorporated.  Do not overmix.

  5. Add in walnuts and mix on the lowest speed for about 15 seconds, until the nuts are evenly incorporated in the dough.

  6. Add in the chocolate chips and mix on the lowest speed for about 15 seconds until chips are evenly incorporated into dough.

  7. Using a 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scooper, scoop out dough balls and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.  

  8. Bake until lightly browned on top for 7-9 minutes.  Let cookies set on cookie sheet for 15 minutes.  At this point, you can enjoy them warm or continue to cool on a wire cooling rack.
