My family has made these for generations. They're also known as "chocolate nut revels". We always make them at Christmas time. They not only taste great, but they're pretty too.
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 1 cup butter
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- Melt together the chocolate chips and pecans.
- Set aside to cool.
- Cream together the butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, and flour.
- Stir in chocolate mixture.
- Swirl slightly.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet.
- Flatten with a greased glass dipped in sugar.
- Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
My dough turned out to be much too thick to drop onto the cookie sheets; I had to roll them into balls by hand. And they weren't really marbleized, more like chocolate cookies. I think that it would have worked out better to mix the chocolate with half of the dough, and then roll a bit of chocolate dough and plain dough together by hand. I was a bit surprised that there were no eggs in this recipe! I omitted the pecans, due to a "taster's" allergy... on average they rated this three stars.
Update: I had so many requests for this delicious cookie, that I made 9 more dozen to give out at Christmas. I tried 1 1/2 tsp. cocoa powder and chopped Ghiradelli's white choc. and used cinnamon sugar on the bottom of the oiled galss. Fantastic! Thanks again for sharing!
