Chocolate Nut Cookies

It’s been a crazy baking weekend for me as I prepared couple of baked items.  I was planning to prepare something with chocolate and decided to bake cookies with full of chocolate, almonds, cashews and walnuts.


Chocolate Nut Cookies are crispy, moist and chewy which combines the subtle flavor of chocolate with nuts. These cookies were fabulous and delicious to eat. They have been highlight of the weekend in our home.

Once we make the cookie dough, if we don’t want to bake the cookies right away, we can freeze it and can enjoy freshly baked cookies on demand. These bake very fast.

Its soft texture makes it a perfect cookie. They are good for gift giving.

Ingredients:

For Cookies – 35 to 40

All purpose flour – 1 cup
Eggs – 2 no
Sugar – 1 cup
Semisweet Chocolate chips – ½ cup
Butter – ½ cup
Chopped Nuts (walnuts, cashews, almonds) -1/2 cup
Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp
Salt a pinch



Preparation

  • In a microwave safe bowl take chocolate chips and butter and heat for 2 mins
  • Stir well until smooth in between and keep aside.
  • In a large bowl take sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, salt and beat well till soft and fluffy
  • Add above chocolate mixture and mix it well
  • Add all purpose flour and stir well.
  • Fold in chopped nuts
  • Keep the cookie batter in freezer for 1 hour or whenever you want to bake them.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Drop by heaping 1 tsp batter with 2 inches apart on greased baking plate
  • Place some nuts on top of cookies.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are crisp.
  • Cool for 2 mins and remove to rack to cool completely.
