Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I was in the ER about three months ago, I threw up a slushie of my internal organs on a poor crew of doctors. I felt bad, so as soon as I got released, I made them these cookies.


  1. 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  4. 1 cup and 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  5. 1/2 cup brown sugar 
  6. 1/2 cup white sugar
  7. 1/2 cup thinly-chopped walnuts
  8. 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  9. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  10. 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix egg, vanilla, and softened butter. Beat and set aside momentarily.
  3. In another bowl, mix flour, sugars, soda, and salt. Stir these ingredients, making sure the brown sugar does not clump. Add walnuts and chocolate chips before stirring once again.
  4. Combine the contents of the two bowls. Stir until the texture is consistent throughout and the distribution of the nuts and chips even.
  5. Use a tablespoon to transfer dough from the bowl to a greased or parchment-covered cookie sheet. Each cookie should be about two tablespoons large. Once the quantities have been measured, roll dough into balls. 
  6. Place cookies in oven and bake for 10 minutes.
