3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt (or 1 teaspoon regular table salt)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon light cream or whole milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped toasted walnuts or pecans

Medium bowl
Large bowl
1-3/8 inch spring-loaded scoop
Parchment paper
Baking sheets

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


Step 1: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.
Step 2: In a large mixer bowl, cream together butter, sugars and vanilla at medium speed until creamy and light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in corn syrup and cream or milk.
Step 3: Reduce mixer speed to low. Add flour mixture, in 3 separate batches, scraping down bowl after each addition. Mix well to ensure full incorporation of flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate) and nuts.
Step 4: For each cookie, using a 1 3/8 inch spring-loaded scoop (or 1 tablespoon measuring spoon), scoop 2 level spoonfuls of dough and roll into a ball with wet hands (slightly wetting your hands periodically will prevent sticking). I guarantee that this added effort will be worth it for these cookies! Arrange at least 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper (cookies will spread a bit during baking.) Flatten each ball of dough slightly with heel of hand or fingers.
Step 5: Bake for 14 minutes or until light golden brown around edges, and centers are still a little puffy. (Do not under bake this particular cookie or they will be too soft.) Allow cookies to cool at least 5 minutes while on baking sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough, reusing parchment paper by turning over when necessary. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. These chewy chocolate chip cookies keep better than traditional types.
