These cookies have replaced the chocolate chip cookie in my home. I created this recipe with the intention of having the perfect blend of chocolate cookie crunch, like an old-fashioned cookie and bit of a cakey texture on the inside. Definitely dunkable.

Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk beating at low speed about 1 minute, or just until blended. Stir in nuts and chocolate chunks.

Drop dough by heaping 2 Tablespoons spoonful on ungreased baking sheet. 

Bake 6 to 9 at a time, leaving about 3-inches between cookies for spreading.

Bake at 350F for 10 to 12 minutes. Cookies will still appear soft and moist when baked, but firm up on cooling.

Cool slightly, then remove to cooling rack.
