Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

I love holidays especially because I get a day off from work and if I feel up to it, I bake. This is exactly what I did on Monday. No laundry or cleaning today! I am a huge fan of Ghirardelli chocolate and bought a bag of semisweet chocolate chips, and made the recipe on the back of the bag and added walnuts. The cookies are so yummy with a nice chew inside, and the perfect bite of chocolate chips and walnuts. You can switch walnuts for pecans, cashews, pistachios, macadamia nuts, etc. or make them nut free and just enjoy the semisweet chocolate chip goodness. See recipe below.
