Consuelo's favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe( with walnuts) Eat cookies while you read the book!
1 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspons Mexican vanilla extract (regular vanilla will do also)
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2-1 cup crushed walnuts .............makes 24 servings
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees celcius). Grease cookie sheets. I actually skip this step and use parchment paper instead. This works very well.
2.Cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beat well and then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour,baking soda and salt, gradually stirring into the creamed mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet.
3. Bake 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
These cookies are so good that they are severly addicting! You will have to ration them out. Just make sure that you get comfortable in your favorite chair so you can eat cookies and read BOX GIRLS!
