Chocolate Walnut Cookies

July 21, 2013

I usually make chocolate cake, sometimes cupcakes, many brownies and seldom chocolate cookies.  I don’t know why but it rarely enters my brain thoughts regarding chocolate cookies.  That is just wrong.  I depend on long ago recipes for the basics, they knew what they were doing.  It seems this summer I really only turn on the oven for cookies.  I don’t know about you, but for me I cannot eat a store-bought cookie.
