You can toast nuts in advance so that you have them on hand. Spread the walnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast in a preheated 325°F oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 12 oz. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts, toasted and chopped (optional)

Directions:

Prepare the baking sheets
Position a rack in the middle of an oven and preheat to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Mix the dough
In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt together the butter and chocolate, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Stir in the brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour and the baking powder until blended. Stir in the walnuts, if using, until evenly distributed. Refrigerate the dough for 4 to 5 minutes.

Bake the cookies
Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared sheets, spacing them about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until the cookies are set but still slightly soft in the center, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool. Makes about 36 cookies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect recipe My favorite cookies from childhood christmases. Biggest tweak with this recipe is that the refrigeration time needs to be at least 10 minutes or you will end up with very thin very crisp cookies which is not what you want with these. Also don't plan on getting 36 cookies...mine were not big and I squeezed out 22. BUT they were super yummy!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not a forgiving recipe These are those chocolate cookies that set the bar for fulfilling a chocolate cookie craving. That said, it's a bit of a fussy recipe in that you need to follow the directions without improvisation. Definitely do not double this recipe if you only have one oven. This batter is particular about timing. Frankly, I prefer Maida Heatter's Mulattoes recipe for the explicit instructions and chocolate requirements. Either way, enjoy these, the batter is delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Favorite I wanted to find a good brownie recipe which I can make it from scratch. It was easy to make and came out perfect. I actually ended up making mini cupcakes instead of cookies and cooked them 4 to 5 minutes extra in the oven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious, but refrigerate the dough for longer! I've made these multiple times (because they really are that good), and I've figured out that the dough really needs to be refrigerated longer than 4-5 minutes (more like 15-20). When you add ingredients to the just-melted chocolate and butter, the dough ends up being slightly warm - if you don't chill it long enough, the rounded tablespoons will spread before you get them in the oven. This results in a flat cookie that isn't as soft and chewy as you might have hoped. Colder dough will maintain its shape until inside the oven, giving you the thicker cookies shown in the picture and preserving some gooey deliciousness on the inside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cookie!! What a wonderful recipe and super easy. I make these often and with many variations instead of the nuts. Everyone's favorite is to replace toasted nuts with peanut butter chips. My only word of caution is to be careful not to over bake-10 minutes MAX. They turn out like soft brownies and are great as part of an ice cream sundae too. Great to add to the cookie arsenal!! Highly recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Make Cookie My cookies didn't look like the picture; they were flat. Didn't add nuts to the recipe due to nut allergy. Cookies were delicious though. Would make them again. It was easier to make than anticipated.
