Ultimate Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Cookies

Yield: 24 cookies

11 1/2 ounces(s) Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet
Chocolate Chips
12 ounce(s) Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
6 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter
3 eggs
1 cup(s) sugar
1/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
1 cup(s) chopped walnuts

In double boiler over hot water, melt bittersweet chocolate chips and butter.

In large bowl with electric mixer or whisk, beat eggs and sugar until thick; stir into chocolate mixture.

In small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder; stir into chocolate mixture.

Gently mix in semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts.

Using a sheet of plastic wrap, form dough into two logs, each 2 inches in diameter and about 12 inches long. As dough will be quite soft, use plastic wrape to hold dough in log shape. Wrap tightly; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm. (Dough may be frozen; thaw in refrigerator before proceeding with recipe.)

Heat oven to 375F.

Unwrap dough; with sharp knife, cut into 3/4-inch slices. Place slices 1 1/2 inches apart on greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until shiny crust forms on top but interior is still soft.

Cool on baking sheet; store in airtight tin up to 1 week.

(This is a biscotti-type cookie but I found this recipe almost thirty years ago which was many years before I started seeing biscotti cookies being sold at coffee houses. Curiously enough, the name is German and translates as "almond bread" even though walnuts are used. I am not sure if it is the eggs or shortening, but this is also a very dense cookie. It is a wonderful dunker in hot coffee! Also, the dough is very stiff.)

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup melted shortening
3 eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon anise seed
1 cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350F. In large mixer bowl with mixer at medium speed, beat sugar, melted shortening and eggs until well blended. Add flour, salt and anise seed and continue beating until well mixed. Stir in walnuts.
Divide dough in half. On ungreased cookie sheet, with floured hands, shape each half into a 12x3 inch loaf about 3 inches apart. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until light brown. Remove from oven and immediately cut each loaf crosswise into 1/2 diagonal slices. Turn each slice on its side. Return to oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes more until lightly browned and toasted. Turn at least once during baking to insure even browning. Makes about 4 dozen.

Lemon Drop Wafers
The crushed candy adds a lemony crunch to these easy-to-make cookies.
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 large egg
Zest of 2 lemons, finely chopped
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup lemon drops (2 ounces of whole candies), crushed(2 ounces of whole candies), crushed
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line two baking sheets with Silpat baking mats or parchment paper, and set aside.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and 1 cup sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl twice. Add egg; mix on high speed until combined. Add lemon zest, and beat to combine.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture, and mix on low speed until combined, about 20 seconds. Add candy, and mix to combine. Transfer dough to a sheet of plastic wrap, and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
4. Pour remaining 1/2 cup sugar into a large bowl. Shape the dough into 1/2-inch balls. Drop each ball into sugar, and roll, coating completely; use sugar to keep dough from sticking to hands.
5. Working in batches, place sugared balls on prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Gently press balls, flattening to a 1/4-inch thickness. Transfer remaining dough to refrigerator.
6. Bake cookies just until golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
