The butter should be softened on the counter before starting. Be careful to get it soft but not melted. Begin by creaming the wet ingredients, butter, vanilla, and eggs until all one consistency. Add the sugar and brown sugar and mix thoroughly. Measure the dry ingredients, except the chips and nuts, into a second bowl. Mix thoroughly with a fork or whisk to avoid clumps of baking soda. Add dry ingredients to the mixture and stir until fully mixed. A standing mixer can also be used, but prepare the dough in the same manner.
