Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Flecked with white chocolate chunks and walnuts, these fudgy cookies are a favorite with my family. Served with a cold glass of milk, they’re pure heaven. I’m never short of taste testers when the first warm batch comes from the oven.

NotesFor perfectly baked cookies, place baking sheet on middle rack of oven; do only one sheet at time. Wipe baking sheets with paper towels or a damp cloth to remove grease. Also let sheets cool completely before using again to prevent dough from melting and spreading out too much during baking.

I like to double the recipe, bake half and freeze the remaining dough to bake another time.
