Walnuttoes created by Debi9400

I found this recipe in a mystery novel by Joanne Fluke, called Lemon Meringue Pie Murder. They require at least 4 hours refrigeration before baking. This recipe makes 8-10 dozen cookies according to the original recipe.

ingredients

directions

  • Melt chocolate chips with margarine in the microwave, stirring as needed.
  • Mix in the brown sugar and let cool.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, ensuring you mix well after each egg.
  • Stir in the vanilla, baking powder and salt.
  • Stir in the flour.
  • Stir in the nuts.
  • Place the dough in the fridge for at least 4 hours but overnight is best.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Using about 1 tablespoon or a cookie scoop, roll walnut sized balls of dough. Coat with sugar.
  • Place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  • Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.
  • The original directions call for the cookies to be baked for 12-14 minutes, however I found that 9 minutes worked best for me.
  • Allow them to cool on the cookie sheet for about a minute and remove. They may stick if left longer on the cookie sheet.

    My family actually gave this a 4 1/2 star rating. I let the mixture sit in the fridge over night. 9 minutes wasn't enough time in my oven but 10 minutes was perfect. Any longer would have been too long. So test your oven out with the first batch. I prerolled and sugared the dough and let sit in the fridge while waiting their turn in the oven. That saved some time.
