I saw these cookies in a magazine advertisement from Ghiradelli, & I just HAD to bake them. And, am I glad that I did! These are one of the richest & best tasting cookies I have ever made. You just have to give them a try!
Here is what you need:
In the double boiler set up over hot water, melt the 60% cacao chocolate & stick of butter.
In a large bowl, beat eggs & sugar together until until thick.
Stir in the chocolate mixture.
Stir in the flour & baking powder.
Mix in the chocolate chips & walnuts.
Using a sheet of plastic wrap, form dough into 2 logs – each about 2 inches in diameter & 12 inches in length. Use the plastic wrap to roll into log shape & wrap tightly. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour – I did it overnight.
After the chilling is done – preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the cookie dough rolls into 3/4 inch slices. Place slices 1.5″ apart on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
