2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pkg (12-oz) white chocolate chips
1 pkg (12-oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1 pkg (11 1/2-oz) milk chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the flours, salt, and baking powder; set aside.
In a large mixer bowl, combine the butter and sugars. Beat mixture, with an electric mixer on high speed, until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time; stir in the vanilla.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Beat well after each addition. Fold in the chips and the walnuts.
Drop the dough onto ungreased baking sheets by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2-inches apart. Flatten dough slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes until light golden brown. Allow to cool on baking sheets for 4 to 5 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Yield: Approximately 5 dozen cookies.
