  • Author: Melissa | My Homemade Roots
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: about 3 dozen cookies 1x


These walnut chocolate chip cookies are the perfect balance of chewy and crispy, with a rich chocolate flavor and a nutty walnut crunch. They’re easy to make and perfect for any occasion, from a cozy winter day to a summer get-together.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup of butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. coarsely chopped nuts
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (12-ounce package)


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Add the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt to a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine and set the bowl aside.
  3. Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and creamy. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract. 
  4. Mix in the nuts and chocolate chips. 
  5. Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, drop the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, or a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. If using a tablespoon, make sure to use a rounded spoonful of dough. 
  6. Bake until lightly brown, about 9-11 minutes. Don’t overbake the cookies or they will be dry. 
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Make sure the cookies are completely cool before storing them. Store them at room temperature in an airtight container for up to a week. Or you can store them in the freezer in airtight freezer bags for up to 3 months.
