 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Baking soda
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1/8 ts Black pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 c Shortening
  • 2 Squares unsweetened
  • -chocolate
  • 1 c Packed brown sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 c Buttermilk or sour milk
  • 1 ts Vanilla
  • 6 oz Semisweet chocolate chips
  • -(1 cup)
  • 1/2 c Chopped walnuts


Stir together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Melt shortening and
chocolate; cool. Stir in brown sugar, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla; mix
until smooth. Stir dry ingredients into saucepan mixture. Mix well. Stir
in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by teaspoonful 2 inches apart onto
greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

My variation: Use 4 Tbsp cocoa instead of chocolate; sift into dry
ingredients. Use 2 tsp vanilla instead of 1. Use 6 oz white chocolate chips
instead of chocolate chips Use macadamias instead of walnuts. Sift dry
ingredients together. Cream shortening and brown sugar together. Add egg
and mix until blended. Add buttermilk and mix well, then stir in vanilla,
chips, and nuts. Bake as above.

These are very moist - let them cool completely before storing, and don't
store them completely airtight unless they're going to be going quickly.

Makes 5-6 dozen.
