Groucho Gram Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Yields: 10 huge cookies

1 cup unsalted (sweet) butter, softened slightly
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. salt
2 cups white flour (unbleached, if possible)
1 and 1/2 large Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate bars (total of 12 oz)
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans

Cream butter and sugars. Add vanilla and salt. Add flour; mix well. Stir in broken up chocolate and nuts until they are well distributed.

Chill dough for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drop cookies onto greased cookie sheets by 1/3 cup amounts. Flatten each cookie by hand to make a 4" cookie. Leave 3" between each cookie.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. The edges need to be light brown but the center soft. Let cool slightly. Then remove to cooling rack or waxed paper to cool off.
