Print this Recipe    Brownie Cookies

Yield: 48 servings

4 oz semisweet chocolate
2 1/3 c sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 t baking powder
1 c granulated sugar
2 eggs
3/4 c finely chopped walnuts
1 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/4 lb unsalted butter
1 T vanilla extract
1 T milk

Melt the chocolate over hot water. Sift the flour, baking soda,
and baking powder together. Set aside. In the bowl of a mixer,
cream the butter. Add the sugar slowly and continue to beat. Add
the vanilla, then the eggs 1 at a time. Add the chocolate and stir
to blend. Stir in the dry ingredients and the milk by hand. When
just blended, mix in the walnuts. Cover and refrigerate dough for
30 minutes before rolling. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly
grease a cookie sheet. To form the cookies, scoop out a portion of
dough and roll out on a well-floured surface. When dough is 1/4
inch thick, cut it into rounds or other desired shapes. Re-roll
scraps and cut again. Place on cookie sheet (leave room for expansion)
and bake for 6 to 8 minutes. Watch for any hot spots in the oven
and don't let these cookies overbrown.

VARIATION: For the Brownie Cookie Crust, make 1 recipe of Brownie
Cookies and chill the dough briefly. Lightly grease the back side
of a large baking sheet. Roll the dough out onto the baking sheet
as thinly as possible so that the baked product will crumble easily.
Bake crust at 375 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes. Let crust harden,
then slide the cookie from the sheet and cool completely. Roll over
the cookie with a rolling pin until it is crushed to a fine crumb.
(There should be about 2 1/4 cups of crumbs.) Melt 1 stick plus 1
tablespoon of unsalted butter. Mix it into the crumbs and pack the
mixture over the bottom and up the sides of a 10-inch springform
pan. Freeze for 30 minutes before filling in order to set the crust.

Note: When I made this, I made individual cookie crumb crusts filled
with Chocolate Mousse by using a large muffin pan. Line each cup
with waxed paper for easy removal.
