Fantastic choc chip cookies

So glad that everyone ( well everyone who got a chance to have one) at work yesterday enjoyed the cookies! This is probably my favorite recipe for chocolate chip and will share so everyone else can enjoy them too! They are slightly crisp, but hearty and chewy, which to me makes them perfect! There is whole wheat flour, which I think also adds a little depth to the flavor too.

(makes 3 dozen)
Here it goes:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat white flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
2 sticks butter ( room tempurature)
1 egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips ( I used the trader joes brand- yummy and cost effective )
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line a cookie sheet, or 2 with parchment paper
With mixer, mix sugars and butter until nice and creamy. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well by hand. Add flours, baking soda and salt and mic well. Lastly, fold in chips and nuts. It will be tough, but a little elbow grease will get everything nicely incorporated
Form a cookie dough into about 1 1/2 inch balls. Place them on cookie sheet spaced 2 inches apart and flatten slightly with palm of hand.Bake for 12-15 minutes on center rack. Remove from sheet and cool on cooling rack. The will be quite soft at first but will firm up when cooled. Eat a few while still warm, then share with others!
