Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

1/2 cup butter

1 2/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 eggs

2 1-ounce squares unsweetened chocolate, melted

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup milk

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup powdered sugar (use as much as needed to coat all of the cookies)

1. Thoroughly mix together butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs, melted chocolate (melt chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave on defrost until just melted). Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to the butter mixture along with the milk about a third at a time. Stir in the nuts (you can use hazelnuts or pecans or walnuts) and blend all ingredients together well.

2. Chill cookie dough for 3 hours. Form dough into 1 inch balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place on a greased cookie sheet 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. Cool slightly and remove to a cooling rack.
