This is the BEST chocolate chip cookie! I even give a tip to keep them fresher longer!
Preheat oven to 375˚F.
In a large bowl cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until smooth.
In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar and mix well.
Add the eggs one at a time until incorporated, then add the vanilla.
Last stir in the chocolate chips and nuts with a wooden spoon.
Scoop cookies onto a baking sheet and bake @ 375 for 10-11 minutes.
SPECIAL TIP: To keep your cookies fresher longer, place a piece of fresh bread in with your cookies. The moisture from the bread will be pulled out and keeps the cookies more moist and fresher longer!
