2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup salted butter - room temp

1 cup walnuts - chopped
combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl. set aside. cream together the butter and both sugars (medium speed) in the bowl of an electric mixer until completely combined and fluffy. in a small bowl, crack the eggs and add the vanilla. then add the eggs one at a time to the bowl of the electric mixer (medium speed), scraping the bottom of the bowl after each one.
add the flour mixture to the electric mixer bowl and mix on medium until just combined. use a spoon to scrape the bottom and make sure all of the ingredients are incorporated. then add the chocolate and walnuts together and mix on medium until just combined, again. cover and let the dough rest in the fridge for at least a half an hour or up to three days. once ready to bake, let come to room temp.
use a tablespoon to scoop the dough; 12 cookies per sheet. bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes. you want the edges to look done and the center to look just slightly undercooked, they will continue to cook on the cookie sheet. then transfer to a cooling rack. store in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
