Recipe: Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

With yet another cold snap in the DC area, we had a craving for warm cookies over the weekend. Something about baking cookies makes the house feel cozier! My husband whipped up his delicious chocolate chip walnut cookies that take no time at all to make and they turned out fantastic! Feel free to try the recipe for yourself. :)
