Ingredients:  
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
cup sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
2⅔ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Directions:
1. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until blended. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
2. Shape 1/4 cupfuls of dough into balls. Flatten each to 3/4-in. thickness (2-1/2-in. diameter), smoothing edges as necessary. Place in an airtight container, separating layers with waxed paper or parchment; refrigerate, covered, overnight.
3. To bake, place dough portions 2 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 400.
4. Bake until edges are golden brown (centers will be light), 10-12 minutes. Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.

To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350 oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
