Ingredients
  • 3 cups + 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ⅔ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugars. Once smooth, add the eggs, molasses, and vanilla extract.
  3. Slowly add the flour mixture, don't over mix. Once incorporated, add your chocolate chips and walnuts. Refrigerate for about an hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 400F.
  5. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
  6. To make heart shaped cookies, spray the inside of your cookie cutter or pancake ring with cooking spray or oil. Then press the dough into the cutter to shape. Gently lift your cutter and repeat.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Let them cool on a cookie rack. Store in an airtight container.
  8. Note- If you use the heart shaped pancake ring, this will produce 13 cookies (a bakers dozen). If you do heaping tablespoon sized cookies you can get up to 70 cookies.
