Chocolate Walnut Cookies

This recipe is a classic and has always been well-received at the cookie swap. I measure out my dry ingredients on a piece of parchment[ paper and this makes it easier to add into the mixer. I also make large batches of the dough and keep it in the fridge during the holidays so I always have freshly baked cookies on hand when company drops in.]

Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • 14 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 2/3 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
Directions
  • In a medium bowl, sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt onto a piece of parchment or wax paper. Set aside. In a mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, and mix until combined. On low speed gradually add the flour mixture and mix until incorporated. With a wooden spoon, mix in the walnuts. Add the melted chocolate and milk, and stir to combine well. Refrigerate dough until firm, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Roll dough into 1 1/2-inch logs and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes more. Cut logs into 1-inch slices and roll in confectioners' sugar. Transfer to an ungreased cookie sheet and bake until golden around the edges, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
