Recipe: Nutty Chocolate Chip Cookies


What you need: 

1 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans



Preheat oven to 275 degrees

Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or leave them ungreased

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together into a small bowl and set aside

Using an electric mixer on medium high speed, cream the butter and sugar together in a medium size mixing bowl until light and fluffy, about 1 1/2 minutes

Stop the mixer to scrape the bowl several times with a rubber spatula

Add the dry ingredients on low speed and continue to blend for 10 seconds

Increase speed to medium high and beat until fluffy, about 2 1/2 minutes. Scrape the bowl.

Add the chocolate chips and nuts with several turns of the mixer, then complete the mixing by hand with a wooden spoon

Measure out generously rounded tablespoonfuls of dough and roll them into balls with your hand

Place the balls 1 1/2 inches apart on the cookie sheets, and press them down lightly to form a flat bottom

Bake the cookies until they are crunchy and golden, about 1 hour

To test for doneness, remove one cookie from the sheet and cut in half. There should be no dough strip in the center

Allow cookies to cool on rack, and enjoy!

We’ll take you inside a few of the homes that have benefited from our House 2 Home Program. Real sellers, real homes, real measurable results. These are their stories:

Days on Market With Another Broker BEFORE House 2 Home: 146 Days

Days on Market AFTER House 2 Home: 30 Days

What We Did: We painted the walls, handrails, and cabinetry in a more current color, staged the home, and took professional pictures.

From the Sellers of Brookburn Drive:

After having very frustrating experiences with two previous real estate agents who could not sell our home in Carmel Valley during the peak selling months, on the recommendation of a friend, we picked Coastal Premier Properties to sell our home during the slow season. We followed the House 2 Home Program to transform our house with immediate results. We had many showings and closed with a great offer! The entire team at Coastal Premier Properties were very responsive and always available to answer our questions!”



Valerio Trail


Days on Market BEFORE House 2 Home: N/A

Days on Market AFTER House 2 Home: 4

What We Did: We installed new carpet, staged the home, and took professional pictures.

In other words, they are efficient and focused. Their entire staff is focused on getting the job done in a very expedient manner.”



Carmel Knolls

Days on Market AFTER House 2 Home: 3

What We Did: We put $60,000 worth of updates and upgrades into this home including new wood floors throughout, marble counters in the kitchen, subway tiles, stainless steel appliances, refaced the fireplaces, updated the master bath with new sinks, fixtures, and quartz counter tops, painted the walls and cabinets, staged, and took professional photos before relisting the home at the same price we had originally gone on the market at. We closed at $10k over list price.

From the Sellers of Carmel Knolls:

Coastal Premier Properties is simply the best real estate company around! They went above and beyond for us with the sale of our home. They managed from start to finish the entire process of our home renovation which was instrumental in our home’s sale for the price we were hoping to get. They are very knowledgeable about the market and knows what needs to be done to get your house sold! They are very dependable, have great attention to detail and are honest. We would work with them again and HIGHLY recommend Coastal Premier Properties to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in San Diego.”
