European Chocolate Cookies
Let your taste buds travel to Europe while you and your family travel back and forth to the cookie jar.
What You'll Need:
cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 (1 ounce) square unsweetened baking chocolate
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking powder
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
What To Do:
- In top of a double boiler, or in a stainless steel bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips, unsweetened chocolate, and butter over simmering water until smooth and well blended. Transfer chocolate mixture to medium-sized bowl and let cool slightly.
- Blend the brown sugar, egg, water, and vanilla into slightly cooled chocolate mixture. Stir in flour and baking powder until well mixed. Stir in remaining 1 cup chocolate chips and nuts. (The batter will be very sticky.) Cover and refrigerate for at least 1-1/2 hours or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with foil. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 13 to 15 minutes, until cookies are firm to touch, reversing position of trays once during baking.
- Remove cookie sheets to wire racks and cool completely before removing cookies from foil.
Store in an airtight container to maintain the scrumptious flavor!
