Total time
Serves: 12
  • 1 cup butter, (2 sticks,unsalted and chilled)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 2 extra large eggs, cold
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cake and pastry flour (you need to use this don't ask why)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbls cornstarch
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup skor bits, rough chopped
  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans, toasted is great but not necessary
  1. In a large bowl combine your dry ingredients. Flour, salt, baking powder,baking soda and cornstarch.
  2. Whisk together until there are no lumps left OR you can pass this through a flour sifter.
  3. Cut chilled butter into 1 inch pieces.
  4. Put the white and brown sugar into a stand mixer and beat on low until all the lumps have blended in.
  5. Add in the cold cubed butter and mix on medium speed.
  6. Add in the eggs one at a time, continuing to mix until well incorporated.
  7. Add in vanilla.
  8. Add in the flour in small increments until fully blended.
  9. Now roll up your sleeves and get ready to put some muscle into mixing in the chocolate chips, skor bits and walnuts BY HAND.
  10. Refrigerate dough overnight or at least 2 hours.
  11. Prior to baking take dough out for 30 minutes to soften a bit. You don't want it too soft or the cookies will spread.
  12. Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  13. Use a large ice cream scoop and divide the dough into 12 equal size balls.
  14. Don't overwork the dough or try to shape them into rolled balls, you want them scraggly looking.
  15. They should be about 4 to 5 oz each if you happen to have a kitchen scale.
  16. Place 6 cookies on each sheet.
  17. Bake each sheet for 25 minutes and remove from oven to let cool. They may not look fully cooked but don't let that fool you. They will continue to cook as they cool. Don't overbake.
  18. Tips - you absolutely can use any add-ins for this cookie. I have made them with chocolate chunks, smarties, rolo bits, reese's pieces etc.
