My Aunt Lynnea not only purchased some of the Please Note Personalized Mint Mixer Recipe Cards but was nice enough to fill one out and send it back to me... with a delicious brownie cookie recipe. These are seriously the best chocolate cookies I have ever baked/eaten.
- 6 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
- 4 squares unsweetened chocolate (use Baker's chocolate for both)
- 3/4 cube of butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups toasted chopper walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Melt the chocolate with the butter and stir until smooth.
Stir in the sugar until well blended. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
Mix in the flour, salt, and baking powder. The dough will be very soft.
If adding the chopped walnuts... toast them on a cookie sheet for about 8-10 minutes and add them to the dough now. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons on to an ungreased cookie sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake for 12 minutes and watch them carefully. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet and cool completely on wire racks. Be sure and eat these with a big glass of milk... they're rich!
