Gourmet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 3
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

1  cup  Butter (unsalted), softened
1  teaspoon  Baking powder
1  cup  Dark brown sugar, packed
1  cup  Light brown sugar, packed
2 1/2  cups  Flour, unbleached
1  tablespoon  Vanilla extract
1 1/2  teaspoons  Salt
2  large  Eggs
4  cups  Walnuts, coarsely chopped
2  tablespoons  Coriander, ground (optional)
3  cups  Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream butter in a large bowl. Beat in the sugar, a little at a time; beat until light. Stir in vanilla extract. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir salt into flour and add to batter. Add nuts and chocolate chips. Chill batter for an hour and drop by 1/4 C measures 3" apart on buttered baking sheets. Bake in the middle of a 375 degree F. oven for 12 to 15 minutes; cool on rack. Notes: * This recipe is adapted from one that was in _Gourmet_ magazine almost 15 years ago. (I've NEVER used the coriander.) The original recipe also said to drop by 1/3 C measures and THEN chill the dough. I just didn't have room in the fridge ;-> And the cookies are still huge when I use the 1/4 Cup to spoon 'em out... * Will use approximately 16 oz. of nuts and 18 oz. of chips.
