  1. Mix together the white and brown sugars
  2. Add the butter and beat until light and fluffy (I've never understood what recipes mean when they say "light and fluffy" because beating together butter and sugar does not result in something fluffy)

  4. Mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda
  5. Add to the butter/sugar mixture
  6. Mix well but do not overbeat
  7. Add the chocolate chips and nuts
