Delicious chocolate cookies with hint of cinnamon.
Makes 4 dozen.
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
With an electric mixer, beat together the 1 cup butter and sugar until smooth-about 2 minutes.
Add the vanilla and egg.
Gradually mix in the flour mixture.
Divide the dough into 12 equal sections.
Working with one section at a time, roll each section into a 12 inch log about 1/2-inch in diameter.
Slice the log into four 3-inch pieces and place them on an ungreased baking sheet.
Repeat with the remaining dough.
Bake the cookies until set, 10-12 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate with 1 tablespoon of butter in a medium saucepan over low heat.
Dip one end of the cookies in the melted chocolate, the sprinkle some chopped nuts on top.
Place on wax paper to cool completely.
