Christy @Teaching Tales Along the Yellow Brick Road (and isn't that the cutest blog name ever?)is having a my kind of LINKY!
Chewy Chocolate Cookies
Pre-heat oven @350
- 1 1/4 cup of sweet cream butter
- 2 cups of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups of flour
- 3/4 cup of cocoa
- 1tsp baking soda
- 1/2tsp salt
- 1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans, but Nana would have used walnuts)
Mix until creamy.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in another bowl - mixing dry ingredients well.
Mix wet with dry, add nuts.
This is a drop cookie dough - more batter like than doughy. I put them in the fridge for about half an hour before I cooked them because I had something else in the oven. I would do the same again, it made the dough/batter easier to handle.
Cook for 8-9 minutes (cookies spread out) When they were still hot on the tray, I sprinkled fancy sugar over them. Leave them on the pan for a little bit before you move them!
The recipe made about 3 dozen delicious cookies! They disappeared! I mean other grade level people came to our meeting and grabbed a few. People called me and asked me to send over cookies to them. I love it when that happens!
