My cousin introduced me to this cookie during a family gathering.

electric mixer on medium speed, beat eggs for 4 minutes or until light and
fluffy. Reduce speed to low; beat in butter, sugars, vanilla, baking soda,
and salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and walnuts (mixture will be
2. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. (I used a
Silpat liner for one and sprayed Pam on the other. The cookie browned

use 2-1/2 inch ice cream scoop), 2-inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheets.
3. Bake cookies 23 to 26 minutes or until golden around the edges,
rotating cookie sheets between the upper and lower racks halfway through baking.
Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.
4. Repeat with remaining dough, reusing the same parchment. Store
the cookies in a tight covered container at room temperature for up to a week or
in the freezer up to three months.
