Today is August 4th and I could not let National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day pass by without making these super soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies!  Softened butter, more brown sugar than white sugar, a mix of bread flour and all purpose flour, guarantee a soft and chewy cookie. These chocolate chip cookies are of course also loaded with chocolate chips and crunchy walnuts.

I use an electric mixer to mix the eggs, sugar and butter, but a mixer is not required. I also combine bread flour and all purpose flour because it makes the cookies nice and chewy, but I definitely would not make an extra trip to the market to buy bread flour if you don’t have any. All purpose flour will do the job!
