  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (4.4 oz/120 grams) granulated sugar

  • 1 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Have ready two ungreased baking sheets.
  2. Mix flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Set aside. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Gradually stir in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
