white sugar 1/2 cup

brown sugar 1/2 cup

egg 1

vanilla 1 tsp

flour  1 & 1/4  cup

baking soda 1/2 tsp

salt 1 pinch

chocolate chips  1 & 1/2 cup

walnut 1 cup (chopped and toasted. You can preheat oven to 150 degree C, and toast for about 10-15 mins. Just take them out when you can smell the aroma.)

 

  1. Cream butter with sugar (whit and brown) till light.
  2. Beat in egg.
  3. Add in vanilla. Give it a good stir.
