Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Here is a recipe for wonderful, tasty, soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies everyone will love!

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup  butter, softened (do not substitute)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup (packed) brown sugar
1 ½  teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups (one 12-ounce package) Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts.
Chill cookie dough by either freezing for 2 hours or refrigerating for at least 12 hours.  This step must be followed to ensure that the cookies come out soft and chewy.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake cookies  for 9 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cookies stand for 2 minutes, then remove them to wire racks and let them cool completely.
