The goddess insists on exact measurements and lines cookie trays with parchment to avoid burning bottoms of cookies.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Let butter and eggs sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Line the cookie trays with parchment paper.
Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
Cream butter; add granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and eggs.
Add dry ingredients, beating gently. Add walnuts and gently mix in chocolate chips.
Drop rounded mounds of the dough onto the parchment (about the size of a tablespoon or use a 1 ½ inch diameter scoop).
Bake 9 ½ minutes until edges are slightly golden brown. Leave on the cookie sheets for a few hours where they will continue cookie ever so gently and firm up but still be soft and moist.
Transfer to airtight containers. Cookies may be frozen.
