Jumbo Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies
In a large bowl combine your dry ingredients; bread flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Give the dry ingredients a quick whisk to combine them and set aside.
In a separate large bowl combine the butter, and both sugars. Using a handheld electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract, continue mixing until thoroughly combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl once more. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix everything together on low speed just until the cookie dough forms. Cookie dough will be thick and sticky. Fold in the chopped walnut and chocolate chips.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a 1 cup measure to scoop the cookie dough into balls. Place the mounds of cookie dough onto the baking sheet (you don’t have to roll them into perfectly shaped balls) and cover them with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 4 to 6 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a separate baking sheet with parchment paper and place to 3 or 4 mounds of cookie dough onto the baking sheet, giving them 3 to 4 inches of space in between each cookie. Bake in the oven for 16-18 minutes. The outside of the cookie should be golden brown in color and appear firm or fully baked but the center will still be cookie-dough like. Do NOT over bake the cookies. When you take the cookies out of the oven leave them to cool directly on the baking sheet. Allow the cookies to cool for about 45 minutes. They’ll still be warm and gooey on the inside but if you try to dig into them before they may fall apart because of the structure of the cookie. Give them time to set.
Leftover cookies can be stored in an airtight container. These cookies are best served the same day you bake them. Cookie will stay soft in the center but the center will become firmer the longer they sit.
This recipe makes 5 or 6 huge cookies, depending on how much dough you pack into the measure cup.
