  • Melt chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring until smooth and combined. Remove from heat and whisk in brown sugar, then eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture with a flexible spatula, then fold in 1 cup walnuts. Refrigerate until dough is just firm, about 30 minutes.

  • Drop heaping tablespoons of dough, at least 2 inches apart, onto 2 parchment-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup walnuts. Bake until tops of cookies are set and shiny, about 12 minutes. Let cool completely on sheets on wire racks.

This recipe is great. The brownie cookies are delicious...especially if you like nuts in your cookies/brownies. At first, I thought this is way too many walnuts, but it was perfect.
