Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

I saw these cookies in a magazine advertisement from Ghiradelli, & I just HAD to bake them.  And, am I glad that I did!  These are one of the richest & best tasting cookies I have ever made.  You just have to give them a try! 

Here is what you need:

In the double boiler set up over hot water, melt the 60% cacao chocolate & stick of butter.

In a large bowl, beat eggs & sugar together until until thick.

Stir in the chocolate mixture.

Stir in the flour & baking powder.

Mix in the chocolate chips & walnuts.

Using a sheet of plastic wrap, form dough into 2 logs - each about 2 inches in diameter & 12 inches in length.  Use the plastic wrap to roll into log shape & wrap tightly.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour - I did it overnight.

After the chilling is done - preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Cut the cookie dough rolls into 3/4 inch slices.  Place slices 1.5" apart on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
