Chocolate Walnut Brownie Cookies

I don’t know about you but my oven is working overtime this holiday season! I’m using the baking pans faster than I can wash them! Over the years I’ve picked up some tips and tricks from various sources to streamline my holiday baking and cooking, but I’m always open to new ways to use ingredients and prepare dishes.

This year Fisher Nuts is teaming up with Food Network Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, a regular judge on Chopped, to make your holiday cooking a bit easier and she offers up some simple twists for cooking with nuts during the holidays.

You can see all of Alex’s recipes and tips for cooking with nuts online.

We want to share a recipe that we made for the holidays with Fisher Walnut products.

These moist, chocolaty cookies have a hint of coffee flavor, and are perfect for the chocolate and nut lover.

Chocolate Walnut Brownie Cookies
Makes 2 dozen

Chocolate Walnut Brownie Cookies

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. instant coffee granules
1 cup Fisher Walnuts
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

• Preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together and set aside.
• Melt 1 cup of the milk chocolate chips and the butter together. Combine with the sugars, and cool for about 5 minutes.
• Into the chocolate-butter mixture, add the eggs, vanilla and coffee. Combine the batter with the flour mixture and stir until thoroughly mixed. Add an additional 1 cup of milk chocolate chip and the walnuts to the dough.
• Drop by 2 teaspoonfuls with 2″ of space onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Cookies will be soft, that’s how they are supposed to be. Cool on the sheet on a rack for 5 minutes, and then remove from the pan directly to a rack to cool completely.
• Microwave the white chocolate chips until smooth. Drizzle the cookies in a pattern, or spoon onto the edge of the cookie and immediately sprinkle with edible holiday decorations or sugars. Let stand until set.

I am working with Fisher to share Chef Alex Guarnaschelli’s recipes and create my own recipe using Fisher Nuts and tools they provided. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. Published by Tammy Litke.

  1. My favorite is walnut brownies, but pecan pie is also good. I also have a routine on Sundays with parfaits with nuts on top.

  2. I have a delicious recipe for an Applesauce cake that uses walnuts. I'd love to make one for Christmas. 🙂

  3. We call them Milbank cakes becuase they come from a bakery there. All they are is white cake frosted with white frosting and covered in crushed peanuts. Simple to make but so good.

  4. I love using nuts for turtle cheese cake on top with caramel and fudge or peanuts on a banana split. Thanks!

  5. vanilla almond crescents 🙂

  6. I make brownies for hubby with almond flour and top with walnuts. We can't eat grains and this is very tasty!

  7. Definitely pesto. Yum!
    Orrrr there's this pita pizza we make…Pear, Walnut, and Gorgonzola Pita Pizzas. Just what it sounds like. We saute the pears with some yellow onion and balsamic before piling it all on the pitas and baking for a bit. Man oh man, is it delicious!

  8. we make sugared pecans for Christmas and this is my favorite nut recipe
