Chocolate Fudge Cookies Recipe

Chocolate Fudge Cookies: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven.

Place the pecans (or walnuts) on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes, or until lightly brown and fragrant. Let the nuts cool and then chop coarsely. 

Next, sift or whisk the flour with the baking powder, salt, and instant espresso powder (if using).  

Melt the chocolate and butter in a stainless steel (heatproof) bowl, placed over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool while you make the batter.

In the bowl of your electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment (or with a hand mixer), beat the sugar and eggs until pale yellow and thick (about 5 minutes). (When you slowly raise the beaters the batter will fall back into the bowl in slow ribbons.) Beat in the melted chocolate mixture and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour mixture and mix only until incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the batter just until firm, about 30-60 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  

For each cookie, place about 1/4 cup (60 grams) of batter onto your prepared cookie sheet, spacing several inches apart. With moist fingers, press batter to form a 3 inch (7.5 cm) round. Bake cookies for about 10 - 12 minutes or until just set around the edges, but the centers are still soft. The tops of the cookies will be cracked and shiny.

Remove from oven and place the baking sheet on a wire rack. The cookies will be quite soft so let them cool for about 5 to 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are best the day they are baked but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the refrigerator) for a few days. They can be frozen.

Makes about 26 cookies.
