"Named by my son. In my experiments I felt that using half butter and half margarine made for the best texture, but you can of course use all butter if you wish. Do not chill the dough."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Beat butter, margarine and powdered sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla extract and water and blend thoroughly. Beat in cocoa.

Step 3

Slowly add flour and nuts and mix until completely incorporated.

Step 4

Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place on ungreased baking sheet.

Step 5

Flatten balls slightly.

Step 6

Bake until cookies are set but not browned, about 8 minutes.

Step 7

Roll in powdered sugar while still warm. Do not skip this step.

Step 8

When cooled, roll in powdered sugar again (or sift powdered sugar over tops). Do not skip this step.

Note: This type of cookie tends to be on the dry side. If you want it to be moister, try underbaking by 1-2 minutes
