Deva's Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

My sons once had a 'sales day' at school where students sell food brought from home. I made these cookies for my sons to sell. Their friends bought one packet to try only to come back to buy some more. Alas, they were too late. The teachers beat them to it. The cookies kind of 'flew off the shelves'. My sons were disappointed sales were too good; it meant no extras for them.

Anyway, here's the recipe.

Makes about 20

125 g butter
120 g soft brown sugar
1 tablespoon golden syrup (I use honey coz I don't have golden syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
200 g chocolate chips (this is mighty plenty, so I use about half the amount)
50 g chopped walnuts
140 g self-raising flour

1. Cream butter, sugar, syrup and vanilla until light and fluffy.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well to form a soft dough. Roll into cherry-sized balls and place on prepared baking trays. Flatten slightly.
3. Bake in preheated 160°C oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack before storing.
