Christmas Cookies - Triple Chocolate Cinnamon Cookies


A cookie with a Mexican flair!

Triple Chocolate Cinnamon Cookies

¼ c flour
¼ c unsweetened cocoa
1 ½ t cinnamon
¼ t baking powder
Pinch salt
6 T unsalted butter, room temperature
7 T sugar
2 lg. eggs
8 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped, melted, cooled
1 c chocolate chips
1 c walnuts, toasted
Walnut halves
Melted semi-sweet chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease cookie sheets.

Combine flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder, salt.

Beat butter, sugar & eggs in another bowl.  Stir in 8 oz. melted chocolate chips.  Stir in dry ingredients.  Add chocolate chips and walnuts.  Drop by tablespoons 1 inch apart.  Press walnut halves on each cookie.

 Bake til dry and cracked by soft – about 11 min.  Let stand on cookie sheet. 5 minutes before moving to rack to cool.

Dip tines of fork into melted chocolate (or pipe) and drizzle onto each cookie

Notes:  This dough is  little difficult.  Even though the recipe does not suggest chilling, I do for a short time.  Chilling allows for a more substantial cookie.  Otherwise, the dough will spread into a thin cookie which breaks easily.  The crumbs are spectacular on vanilla ice cream!

I usually make a double batch - they go quickly!
