Recipe for Chocolate Chip & Walnut Cookies

This was the first ever recipe I posted on Shifting Sand. I decided to reproduce it here, where it should have been :).

125 grams of butter
150 grams of brown sugar (may have to reduce this a bit as babe commented that the cookies were a mite too sweet.... which I agree)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla essence (which I didn't add coz I didn't have any)
150 grams plain flour*
1/2 teaspoon baking powder*
1/2 teaspoon baking soda*
15 grams of cocoa powder*
200 grams chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

* these are sifted together

1. Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy
2. Add egg and vanilla essence and mix well
3. Add the sifted dry ingredients in the mixture, followed with the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts
4. Mix all these until dough forms. Drop by teaspoon onto greased backing pan (this is to get the Famous Amos sized cookies. For me, I used the spoon we eat our dinner with... dinner spoon??)
5. Bake at 180 degress C for 15 minutes (but don't take my word for it coz it depends on the size of your cookie and the type of oven you have. I have the el cheepo type where you have to keep peeping into it to see if the cookies are done..else, you'll end up with CHARRED chocolate chip cookies)
