Brownie Cookies

Makes: 3 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

  • 4 squares (1 oz each) semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 4 squares (1 oz each) unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 1 and 1/3 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

    Heat the semi-sweet and unsweetened chocolate with the cocoa powder and butter for 1 1/2 to 3 minutes on high in the microwave, until almost melted, stirring halfway through.

    When the chocolate and butter mixture is smooth, stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla, mixing well.

  2. Stir in the salt flour, baking powder, chocolate chips and nuts.

    Drop rounded teaspoons of dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cooking sheets.

    Bake 12 minutes or until set; do not overbake. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes, then remove from the pan and finish cooling on a rack.
