All-purpose flour -- 1 ¾ cups
Baking soda -- ¾ tsp
Salt -- 1 tbsp
Butter -- 14 tbsp, melted
Light brown sugar -- ½ cup packed
Sugar -- ½ cup
Light corn syrup -- 2 tbsp, optional - I did not use
Vanilla extract -- 1 tbsp
Milk -- 2 tbsp
Bittersweet chocolate chips -- 1 ½ cups
Chopped nuts -- 1 cup, optional - any nuts of your choice
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
In a mixer, cream the butter and sugars until fluffy(and corn syrup if using), 3 - 4 minutes.
Stir in the vanilla, then the milk. Add the flour mixture all at once and blend just until a dough forms.
Fold in the chocolate and nuts. Chill the dough.
Make small balls out of the dough(approx 2 tbsp), then place on the baking sheet and gently flatten them. Place about 2 inches apart
Chill the dough between batches. Bake until the edges are dark golden brown, 14 to 17 minutes.
Let cool slightly on the baking sheet, then transfer to a baking rack.
