How to Make Italian Chocolate Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350*. Mix all dry ingredients and nuts in a large bowl until well blended. Beat the eggs, milk and oil together in a separate bowl; add to dry mixture and mix until well blended. Dough should be soft but not sticky, add small amounts of flour if needed to reach soft consistency.
  2. Roll dough into 1" balls and place on lightly greased baking sheets about 1" apart. Bake 12-15 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned, cool on racks.
  3. Icing:

    Mix powdered sugar, vanilla and milk until smooth.
    I prefer to use my food processor to blend this, it comes out like silk.

    You can choose to add your favorite extract for the vanilla also, and you could sprinkle them up pretty with the colored sprinkles, jimmies etc..
