Great for plan-ahead cookies. Plan ahead: Freeze the dough for up to 4 months. Thaw at room temperature 45 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Beat the butter, sugar, and eggs until fluffy. Add the chocolate, vanilla and salt and mix well. Gradually beat in the flour. Mix in 1 cup of the walnuts.
  2. Halve the dough and shape each piece into a log 8 inches long and 2 inches in diameter.
  3. Roll each log in the remaining walnuts; wrap separately in plastic and chill until firm, about 1 hour.
  4. Heat oven to 375ºF. Grease 2 cookie sheets. Cut the dough into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place on the sheets. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottoms. Remove the cookies with a metal spatula and cool.

I'm giving these cookies 4 stars instead of 5 not for the flavor, which is very very good but for the dough texture. The dough was so wet that it was almost impossible to roll it into a log. It was very hard to work with because of this wetness. But I finally got the job done and the final flavor was worth the effort. Made for PAC Fall 09.
