I’ve won awards with these cookies.

## Ingredients

### Dry

- \(270\) g (\(1\frac{3}{4}\) cups) bread flour
- \(85\) g (\(1\) cup) rolled oats
- \(1\) tsp baking soda
- \(6\) g (\(1\) tsp) kosher salt

### Wet

- \(2\) sticks of good quality softened butter (e.g. Irish)
- \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup light brown sugar
- \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup granulated sugar
- \(2\) eggs
- \(1\frac{1}{2}\) tsp vanilla extract

### Finishing

- \(1\) cup of Ghiradelli semisweet chocolate chips or break up an equivalent amount of a nice, bittersweet chocolate bar
- \(1\frac{1}{3}\) cup walnuts
- optional: coarse kosher or sea salt

## Directions

- Preheat oven to 375º F (190º C)
- Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl and set aside
- Cream butter and sugars in a large bowl (I use a food processor)
- Mix in eggs separately and then vanilla
- Add dry ingredients and mix very well. I put on hearing protection and run the food processor for a couple of minutes. You’re building gluten. Mmm … gluten
- add walnuts, process, drop in the chocolate bar and process or drop in the chocolate chips and stir
- Scoop onto cookie sheet with #20 (yellow handled) disher
- optional: sprinkle with coarse salt
- bake for 13 minutes
