Chunky Chocolate Walnut Cookies

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 & 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 & 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 2 (7 ounce) milk chocolate bars cut into 1/2 inch pieces

Beat butter, sugars egg and vanilla.  Beat until well blended.

Combine flour, soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonful's about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake in a preheated 375 degrees oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute.  Remove to wire rack to cool.  Makes about 4 dozen, or less if you make big cookies like I do.


  1. Well, I know these cookies would taste heavenly! Thx for the recipe.

  2. Dear Ms Beth Marie, I am so happy to met you and to get the opportunity to try some of your recipes. After God, family, country and home . . . I like good food. None of this prepackaged stuff with ingredients that I can not pronounce, but the good basic go into the kitchen and make something worth eating kind of food. I am sure that is what I'm going to find here. Thank you for sharing your collection of family recipes, I am looking forward to trying some of them. Well, it's getting late and I'm off to bed. Have a very nice day tomorrow, and God bless you, your newest follower, Connie :)

  3. Hello Beth, I was so excited when I saw your photo in my followers list this morning. Thank you so much. I am looking very forward to getting to know you better through blogging and in trying some of your yummy recipes. I am happy that you like my bucket idea . . . just Sunday afternoon my hubby needed a rag for a job in the backyard, and he went right to the bucket. I'm excited about not having anymore ruined dishtowels.
    Have a wonderful week, Connie :)
