Levian Knockoffs:

2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 1/3 cup flour
2 cups chocolate chips
chopped walnuts to taste.

that's right no vanilla.

mix ingredients. chill dough overnight (i have NO idea why but it makes a huge difference in how the cookies turn out). shape dough into 12 "patties" (yes it only makes 12 but they are big so instead of eating a dozen cookies like i normally do, i just eat four). bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes. this temp/time combo will give you a cookie that is slightly crispy on the edges and soft and chewy in the middle. They should look something like this:

oh and by the way....i totally won the cookie eat off...and i have the love handles to prove it.

I was looking more carefully at this recipe - it is pretty close to Adele Webster's great recipe except it takes less flour. And what exactly is a stick of butter? You really have embraced American living. How much is a stick? We only buy butter in Canada by the pound.

Oh one more thing: Adele's takes less flour - 2 1/4 cup for 1 pound of butter and two eggs and 1 tsp vanilla. I guess it really isn't the same except for the sugar.
