Chocolate Chip Cookies (chefs Cuisiniers Club)

Author/Submitted by: Gourmet Magazine/Cyberealm
Servings: 60
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

3 1/2  cups  Flour
1 1/2  teaspoons  Baking soda
1 1/2  teaspoons  Salt
2    Vanilla beans, split length-wise
3  sticks  unsalted butter, softened
1  cup  +2 T firmly packed brown
1  cup  +2 T granulated sugar
3  large  Eggs
1 1/2  teaspoons  Vanilla extract
3  cups  Semisweet chocolate chips, or chunks, 1 lb.
1 1/2  cups  Chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Scrape vanilla bean seeds from pods into standing electric mixer, reserving pods for another use if desired, and add butter and sugars, beating until light and fluffy. One at a time, beat in eggs, beating well after each addition, and beat in vanilla extract. Add flour mixture and beat until dough just comes together. Stir in chocolate chips or chunks and walnuts (do not overmix). Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and arrange about 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten balls slightly with a metal spatula and bake cookies in batches in middle of the oven until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Tranfer cookies with spatula to racks to cool.
