These crackly and chocolaty cookies are just like brownies, but way better. Chocolate lovers will fight over these babies.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 12 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
In a double boiler or microwave oven (on low), melt the chocolate and butter and stir together; set aside to cool.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs and sugar on high speed of an electric mixer for 2 to 3 minutes. On low speed, add the melted chocolate mixture and vanilla while mixing. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; fold into the egg mixture with a large spoon. Stir in the nuts, and let the batter rest for 5 minutes.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies should spring back to touch. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool.
