DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Beat butter, margarine and powdered sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in vanilla extract and water and blend thoroughly.
  • Beat in cocoa.
  • Slowly add flour and nuts and mix until completely incorporated.
  • Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place on ungreased baking sheet.
  • Flatten balls slightly.
  • Bake until cookies are set but not browned, about 8 minutes.
  • Roll in powdered sugar while still warm. Do not skip this step.
  • When cooled, roll in powdered sugar again (or sift powdered sugar over tops). Do not skip this step.
  • Note: This type of cookie tends to be on the dry side. If you want it to be moister, try underbaking by 1-2 minutes.
