  • 150 g room temperature butter
  • 100 g sugar
  • 175 g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or seeds from 1 vanilla bean
  • 150 g toasted and roughly chopped walnuts
  • 100 g chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
  • For topping
  • + 50 g milk chocolate
  • 50 g dark chocolate


  • First toast and chop walnuts. If you don’t know how, I describe it in my previous walnut and chocolate cookie post. Then roughly chop 100 g of chocolate.
  • In a bowl mix together flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder.
  • In another bowl, mix together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 min.
  • Add the egg and vanilla, mix for 1 min.
  • With a mixer on low speed, start adding your dry ingredients from the first bowl and mix just until they are incorporated. Don’t over-mix.
  • Now add the chopped chocolate and walnuts (leave some walnuts for the decoration at the end) and mix for 2-3 second so they distribute evenly.
  • Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 hour (as I am making these cookies in the winter I just place the covered dough outside on the balcony).
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Take some dough with a spoon and make balls as big as a walnut.
  • Place them on a baking sheet about 3 cm apart so they don’t touch when they spread in the oven.
  • Bake for 10 min, take them out of the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool completely. Before baking another batch wait for the baking sheet to cool down (doesn’t take long).
  • For the topping chop both of the chocolates and melt them over a double boiler. Put a teaspoon of melted chocolate on a cookie and sprinkle over some chopped walnuts. And you are done!
  • Okay, maybe you should wait for the chocolate to harden and then eat them (if you can wait any longer)!
