“I know everyone has their own version of the Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, but in our house this is the ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. The walnuts give it a real nice "grown up" edge and the Demerara's just plain heavenly. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! FOODBIT: It's imperative to the success of this recipe that the ingredients and/or brands not be substituted.”
