Gourmet Chocolate Chip Cookies
Dark brown sugar,
Light brown sugar,
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.
* 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.
