I am so glad to find this recipe in it's entirety. I'd cut it out of BH&G a few years back and accidentally cut off the baking instructions so when I made them I had to guess. Anyway, this is the best Chocolate Crinkle cookie I have ever had. I make them without the nuts mixed in. Any chocoholic that hasn't tried this recipe is missing out!
