Chocolate Cookies with Walnuts

These are incredibly distinct cookies. With simply a quarter cup of flour in the whole recipe, the bulk of this cookie is highly loaded with chocolate and walnuts. (And yes, if you do not take place to be a fan of walnuts, do not hesitate to replace pecans. However, please hear me out initially, ok?)

The very first time I prepared to make these cookies, I understood that Sean would more than happy to see them, considering that he likes walnuts in his cookies and walnuts have not constantly been my favorite. I more than happy to state that I end up caring these cookies, walnuts and all.

I at first believed to make them with pecans, however I’m grateful I didn’t. In the 10+ years considering that I initially made these cookies, I have actually never ever once again been lured to switch in pecans. The abundant, deep cocoa taste of chocolate plays perfectly with the earthy, somewhat bitter notes of walnuts, forming a scrumptious contrast.
