- 1-1/2 cup (180 g) All purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (58 g) Powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup (42 g) Unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup (2 sticks) Butter unsalted
- 2 TBSP Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup (rough Chopped) Walnuts
Drizzle of White Chocolate
- 1 cup White chocolate wafers
There is just something about chocolate and walnuts that remind me of an ice cream sundae with wet walnuts and chocolate syrup. That is still one of my favorite even after all these years. I made this chocolate shortbread cookie about half dollar circle size and about 1/2 an inch thick so you could eat them in one bite.
They melt in your mouth and the white chocolate drizzle on top holds the cookie together till you taste the walnut, cocoa and white chocolate all at the same time.
I hope you like this cookie as much as I do!

Weigh or measure into a bowl the flour, sugar, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Whisk to blend and set the bowl aside.
In a handheld or stand mixer (I use a KitchenAid) blend the butter and vanilla extract together. Add the dry ingredients SLOWLY or you will have the flour mixture all over the counter. It is light and goes everywhere. Mix till blended and becomes a soft dough.
Put the dough onto a Silicone Non-Stick Pastry Mat or a non stick surface and divide the dough in half. Roll the dough into 2 log shapes of about 2" in diameter and wrap in plastic wrap. I put them on a cookie pan and put them into the refrigerator overnight.
Preheat the over to 325° and line cookie pans with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone sheet. Take the one log of cookie dough out of the refrigerator and unwrap the plastic wrap. Slice about 1/2 " medallion and place on the cookie pan. They do not spread much so space about 1" apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Give them a minute or two when you pull them out so they firm up a little before moving to the cooling rack.
Take the white chocolate wafers and put about 1 cup into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir them around a little they will still be solid. Heat them for another 30 seconds and stir. Most of the wafers should be melted or very soft. Heat another 15 seconds if needed. Take a spoon and wave back and forth over the cookies for as much white chocolate as you like.
