Chocolate Chip and Walnut Cookie



Cookie is something I don't make often. It's been ages since I baked my last so I felt a little intimidated making these. When I baked the first batch, they turned hard and crispy. They were still good but dry. Not the result I was aiming. I must have cooked them past the baking time or the batter I put  was too little. I don't have ice cream scoop to use so the amount I put on the greased pan was just an estimation. I took a more careful approach with the second batch by sticking to the baking time and dropping a bigger spoonful of batter on the cookie sheet . They came out nicely browned, crispy edges but chewy in the inside. So good! Stay tuned for more cookie adventure in the future.
