- Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. With a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Stir in semisweet chocolate and white chocolate pieces and, if desired, nuts.
- With a 1/4-cup dry measure or scoop, drop mounds of dough about 4 inches apart on greased cookie sheets.
- Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
