Chocolate Nut Cookies

You can pretty much add anything you like to this cookie base.  My favorite combination is walnuts and chocolate chips!
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp toasted walnut oil (or any preferred nut oil)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Cream butter, oil, sugar, egg, vanilla and salt.
  3. Stir in flour, nuts and chocolate chips.
  4. Drop dough by the tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  
  5. Bake until lightly browned on top about 10-12 minutes.
Tip:  You can experiment with these cookies by using different nut oils and substituting the walnuts for almonds or pecans.
