A Big Thank You to my lovely [new] friend, Anne and her darling little girl Jasmine [Isabelle's new friend - they are only 2 weeks apart!] for a delicious surprise gift, of Anne's home-baked choc chip biscuits, left on our front step tied up with ribbon and a white paper bag! Needless to say they were absolutely scrumptious with my afternoon coffee today! In honour of Anne's biscuits here's one I also make but try not to that often because I eat them! Thank You Anne.

200g good-quality dark cooking chocolate, coarsely chopped
150g (1 1/2 cups) walnut halves, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
Use an electric beater to beat butter and sugar in a medium bowl until well combined. Add the egg and beat until combined. Sift the flour over the butter mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. Add the chocolate and walnuts, and stir to combine.
Use your hands to roll tablespoonful of the cookie mixture into balls. Place the balls, 3cm apart, on prepared trays. Use a fork to flatten slightly. Bake in preheated oven, swapping the trays halfway through cooking, for 20 minutes or until light golden. Remove from oven and set aside to cool on the trays for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Note: Nuts & Milk Chocolate - substitute another nut type if you don't fancy walnuts - macadamias, or peanuts are very nice in this recipe. The same goes with milk chocolate - change it to white or dark chocolate and mix it up cafe style!
