Prep time: 20 mins

Total time: 32 mins
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbs plus 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp coarse salt
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 6 Tbs unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • ⅔ cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups toasted walnuts (about 4 ounces), coarsely chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring until smooth and combined. Remove from heat and whisk in brown sugar, then eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture with a flexible spatula, then fold in 1 cup walnuts. Refrigerate until dough is just firm, about 30 minutes.
  3. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough, at least 2 inches apart, onto 2 parchment-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup walnuts. Bake until tops of cookies are set and shiny, about 12 minutes. Let cool completely on sheets on wire racks.
