Killer Bea's Cookies
Recipe By : I Never Forget a Meal by Michael Tucker
Serving Size : 36 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Chocolate Cookies
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/4 cups triple-sifted unbleached all purpose flour -- measure after sifting
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup butter -- softened
1 cup brown sugar -- firmly packed
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. water
1 egg
1 cup walnuts -- finely chopped
3 cups chocolate chips -- 1-1/2 pkgs.


Preheat oven to 375F. Sift together the dry ingredients; set aside.

Combine the butter, sugar, vanilla and water. Add the egg and beat until creamy. Add the dry ingredients; mix well. Stir in the walnuts and chocolate bits.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, shiny side up (or use a silpat mat, a dupont mat or parchment paper).

Drop the cookie dough onto ungreased foil by the tablespoonful, about 1" apart. Bake about 10-12 minutes or until they turn light brown. Remove from oven. If they feel too soft, leave them on the sheet until they harden a bit.

Risa's notes: These cookies do not spread. They stay right where they are put and puff up a bit.
