Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts toasted
  • 2 ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries rinsed and dried

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spread walnuts on a baking sheet and toast for 4-6 minutes. Set aside to cool
  • In a small mixing bowl use a whisk to sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, use an electric mixer on medium-high to cream together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes or until creamy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
  • Lower the speed of the mixer and gradually add the sifted dry ingredients beating just until fully combined. Scrape the sides of the bowl periodically.
  • By hand, fold the chocolate chips, cranberries and walnuts into the dough. Mix until the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Using a 2 oz ice cream scoop or a Tbsp, divide the cookie dough leaving at least 2-inches between each.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
