Fudge Cookies

I love chocolate as I’m sure many of you do, too. I’m not sure I love chocolate as much as one of my good friends, though. She is a self-proclaimed chocoholic and needs her fix every day. I’m making a batch of these Fudge Cookies on her next visit. I know she won’t be able to resist.

To be completely honest, I don’t think I could resist either….

These Fudge Cookies are so easy to whip up. I recommend chilling the dough for an hour in the fridge. They turn out better when you do that extra step. Something about solidifying the fat in the cookies.

If you aren’t a fan of nuts, just leave them out. No big deal. I like the extra crunch of the walnuts.

How to Make Fudge Cookies

Grab two cookie sheets and grease them up! Use cooking spray or do what I do by putting a plastic baggie over my hand and greasing them with butter.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed. Add in the eggs, one at a time, making sure to beat after each egg.

In another large bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Fold the dry mixture into the creamed butter/sugar mixture. Add the vanilla and walnuts and stir together.

Put the cookie dough in the fridge to chill for an hour.

Preheat oven to 350F. Drop 1 teaspoon of chilled cookie dough onto the cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and place on a wire rack to cool.
