  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

The Steps

For The Cookies


  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Line two cookie trays with silicon mats or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Using a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar until combined, medium speed for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and mix on medium-low speed until combined. About 15 seconds.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir to combine. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. Add the mini chocolate chips and walnuts into the mixer mix on low speed and briefly combine until evenly distributed.
  6. Scoop 2 tablespoon size balls onto prepared trays a few inches apart. Using a half cookie sheet, 12 balls per should fit per tray.
  7. Place cookie sheets in oven and bake for 6 minutes. Rotate trays and bake another 6-8 minutes. Watch the cookies carefully after rotating, as every oven is different.  When the cookies are lightly golden brown, with a richer golden ring around the edges, remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.


For The Chocolate Coating

  1. Line one half sheet baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Using a double boiler, melt chocolate until just smooth. Once the cookies are completely cooled, dip each cookie half way in chocolate, shaking off excess before placing cookies on prepared tray. Continue dipping each cookie, sprinkling a few chopped walnuts on top after each dip.

Once cookies are dipped, place tray in the refrigerator to help the chocolate set.
