Let me tell you… cookies have really become my specialty. My sister and boyfriend are always asking for more, so I have to keep coming out with newer better ideas!
For this specific chocolate walnut slice and bake cookie recipe all you need to do is mix the butter and sugar until everything is incorporated and the mix has become lighter in color.

- This step is optional but who doesn't love a nice smooth coat of chocolate on their cookies so I always go for it. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave in 30 second increments.
- When its completely melted dip half of the cookie in the chocolate, place it back on the parchment paper and sprinkle some coarse sea salt on top.
Tips and tricks for the perfect slice and bake cookies
These cookies are very simple and these tips will ensure and even better finish!
- When measuring the flour, don’t pack it in the measuring cup. Scoop it with a spoon onto the measuring cup and don’t pack it! if you add too much flour, the cookie will be too crumbly.
- Make sure the oven is preheated to the right temperature before baking these cookies.
- Do no over bake the cookies, these cookies will stay lighter in color. The bottom will be a little brown and that’s okay, but we still want the top to stay lighter.
