Chocolate-chip Walnut Cookie

The Christmas fever is not only on the radio, but my mail box is brimming with fliers that take more than a pair of hands to haul home!  The green, white and red colors permeate everywhere.  I am not complaining.  I love this season, and I am finding out that these fliers, as painful as they are for the mess it creates and the greed that it suggests, can also be useful.  Prop for photography is my suggestion.     
Chocolate Chip Cookie
 

The recipe for this cookie is from 'Joy of Baking.’  It’s a nice, chewy cookie and I am loving the walnuts and chocolate chips incorporated into each bite .  Last year, around this time, I made a lot of cookies with a friend of mine which I have shared on the blog.  This year, I have to do this by myself, but fondly remember all my friends.

During this season of love and gratitude, I have many things to be thankful for - especially friends.  Whether you have a reason or not, bake some these cookies, if only to relish the decadence.
