These delicious cookies are packed with chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, so we won't blame you if you want one all for yourself. Make a batch for the holidays or for a bake sale in the summer. Wherever you take them, people will be impressed.

These look marvelous! I'm a fan of giant cookies and a quarter-pound chocolate chip cookie just gets my mouth watering. I like the idea below of using one cup of brown sugar and one cup of white sugar. The idea of adding some peanut butter chips is also appealing, and if I used that, I'd eliminate the walnut pieces in favor of adding peanuts to the mix as well as the chips. I'm looking forward to making these up soon.

these look like great chocolate chip cookies! thanks for the sugar suggestion, Maggie. I never know how substitutions will work. I might even throw some peanut butter chips into the batter, to give these cookies even more taste.

My personal chocolate chip cookie recipe is really similar to this one and it is always a crowd-pleaser! A good substitution for the 2 cups of brown sugar would be 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of white sugar. It'll lighten the colors of the cookies while keeping good flavors and texture.
