The supermarket by my house makes these crunchy cookies that are filled with walnuts and have a chewy center.  They are addictive.  So I decided to look around and find a recipe for them.  After a while I discovered a recipe that sounds delicious.  Although it did not contain nuts, I figured we could work around it.

  • 1 1/4 cups butter, softened

  • 2 cups unsifted flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

The first step is to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Next place the softened butter and sugar in a bowl and cream them together.

Then add the vanilla and eggs and continue to mix.

While the mixture is beating place the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.  Mix together.

Now slowly pour the flour mixture into the butter/sugar mixture.

Slowly add the flour, I slipped and added it a little too quick.  Needless to say, I had to take a shower after making the cookies.

Once the mixture is fully incorporated add the chocolate chips and walnuts.

The dough is stiff so I found it easiest to mix in the nuts and chips by hand.

Next grab about a tablespoon of dough and form 1 inch diameter balls.  Then place them on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.  Once on the baking sheet, use your hand to slightly flatten the dough ball.

Once the pan is cool to the touch, remove the cookies and place them on a wire cooling rack.

These cookies are perfect with coffee or just a giant glass of milk.
