Chocolate Chip Cookies

I like to call these PMS cookies. they have three different kinds of chocolate in it! I received this recipe in the mail last week in an advertisement for Great American Home Baking.

3 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 c. (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 pkg (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1 pkg (11 1/2 oz) milk chocolate chips
1 pkg (12 oz) white chocolate chips
1 c. coarsely chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl; set aside. combine the butter, sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer set on high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time; stir in the vanilla.

2. Gradually add the flour mixture, beating well after each addition. Fold in all the chocolate chips and the walnuts.

3. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets (or lined with parchment paper). Flatten the dough slightly with the back of a fork. Bake the cookies until golden, about 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Yield: 5 dozen

I made some smaller, but I like the ones I made bigger since they were a little more soft.

I made the dough up the night before and baked the next day. Still excellent!
