There may be a little bit of dough left over. If so, bake and remove from the oven sooner than the monster cookies.
  • 2¼ cups (324 grams) all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon (3 grams) baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon (4 grams) salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 16 tablespoons (218 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup (156 grams) sugar
  • ¾ cup (182 grams) light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) vanilla extract
  • 2⅔ cups (483 grams) chocolate chips, divided
  • 2⅔ cups (303 grams) chopped walnuts, divided
  • sea salt
  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. Place the butter, sugar and brown sugar into a large mixing bowl. Beat until light and creamy, about 3 minutes, scraping down the bowl as needed.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla.
  4. Blend in the dry ingredients.
  5. Add ⅔ cup (137 grams) chocolate chips and ⅔ cup (87 grams) chopped walnuts.
  6. Transfer back to the bowl that the dry ingredients were in. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  7. Preheat oven to 350°. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  8. Combine the remaining chocolate chips and walnut pieces.
  9. Use a large cookie dough scoop (approximately ¼ cup) to scoop the dough. Roll them into balls and cover with the chocolate chips/walnuts. Press the toppings into the dough while keeping the ball shape.
  10. Place 5-6 cookies per baking sheet.
  11. Bake at 350° for 24-26 minutes rotating the pans top to bottom and front to back halfway through.
  12. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the tops with sea salt. Cool on the pans.
If you prefer a softer cookie, bake for 22-24 minutes. If you prefer a firmer cookie, bake for 24-26 minutes
