Ashley Grombol


1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts
2 oz bitter sweet chocolate, roughly chopped (optional)
2 tsp canola oil (optional)

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt, set aside
In a stand up mixer with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars together until light in color and fluffy (about 3-5 minutes)
Add in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla one at a time, allowing each to beat in completely before adding the next
Add all of flour mixture
Turn mixer to low speed and allow dry ingredients to mix in, once just combined, add in chocolate chips and walnuts, scrape down sides as necessary
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill over night
Once ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees
Roll chilled dough into 1 1/2 - 2" balls
Place on lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes (11minutes was perfect for me), take out the cookies and let them cool, they may look under baked!! Do not bake them longer!
Once cooled for 5 minutes on baking sheet, move to wire rack to allow to cool completely

For Dip:
Add chopped dark chocolate and oil into a small bowl, place in microwave in 30 second bursts to slowly melt
Stir after each 30 second increment until fully melted
Dip half of cookie into melted chocolate and place on parchment paper, chill to allow chocolate to harden

*You can use a scoop to make sure the cookies are all perfectly the same size, but I just eyeballed it, and this recipe made a dozen and a half cookies
