My Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rose's answer to Chocolate Chip Cookies

I guess when one is a world famous cookbook author,
it must be a constant parade of 

Do you make? Would you make? Could you make?

Marathon dual Rose baking day 
with cookies and Sweet Potato Bread

So it is with these chocolate chip cookies.
Clarifying the butter to beurre noisette 
and not burning it to beurre noir,
is a crucial step.
Toasting the walnuts is another.
Using Tony's posted video for garlic skin removal
by shaking in a glass jar,
I tried it with walnuts.
Works very well!
Tipped into the bowl
a lovely dough takes shape 
with Muscavado sugar, regular sugar,
flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla and egg.

Mistakenly bought instead of chocolate chips,
they were a lucky accident 
and added to the dough with walnuts.

Wrapped for a night in the frig.

I forgot to flatten the first batch.

Side by side with the flattened batch.
I prefer the unflattened ones;
nice and cakey. 
Great flavor, too.
