Italian Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
- 2 cups butter
- 4 cups milk
- 12 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ cups white sugar
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 ½ teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 3 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups chopped walnuts
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter and milk. Cook until melted, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.
step 2: In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Stir in the milk mixture by hand until the dough is firm and not tacky. Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Roll the dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and place onto the prepared cookie sheets. These cookies do not spread much, so you can place them fairly close together.
step 3: Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks. Glaze with a thin confectioners' icing when cool to preserve freshness.
