Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield: 16 4-inch cookies
  • 1 cup(s) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 1/3 cup(s) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 10 tablespoon(s) (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup(s) lightly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) plus 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoon(s) milk
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup(s) to 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • Convert to metric

Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with foil, dull side up. Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt together thoroughly. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the butter, both sugars, corn syrup, milk, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture. Stir in the nuts and chocolate chips. The dough will be very soft. 
Divide the dough in half. Divide one half of the dough into 10 equal pieces (each a scant 1/4 cup). Place 5 pieces of dough least 3 inches apart on each lined baking sheet. Use your fingers covered with a piece of plastic wrap to flatten each scoop until it is 3 inches in diameter. (Cookies will spread even more as they bake). 
Bake the two sheets for 8 minutes. Rotate the sheets from the top rack to the bottom and from front to back. Bake for 7-10 more minutes, watching closely, until the cookies are evenly dark golden brown all over. (Pale cookies will not be crispy). Let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Slide the foil with cookies onto racks. When the baking sheets are cool, repeat with the remaining dough. Cool cookies completely before stacking or storing. Cookies keep, in an airtight container for at least 5 days.
