Chocolate Walnut Cookies
Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).
Coarsely chop the chocolate. Melt over a hot, not boiling, water bath. Remove from the heat and let cool until lukewarm.
Peel the ginger. Rub the ginger into a bowl and mix with the butter, sugar and egg until fluffy.
Mix the flour, baking powder and cocoa. Sift the flour mixture into the butter mixture and mix well. Mix in the chocolate and nuts.
Use a tablespoon to heap portions of the dough onto a lined baking sheet, leaving space in between.
Bake for about 12 minutes, remove from the oven, cool and serve.
