Welcome to Cookie of the Month

Welcome to Cookie of the Month.  This is a new segment at TJOC where I will be featuring a new cookie recipe each month until Christmas. 

I’m hoping you will enjoy the new cookie recipes, and will add them to your cookie making list this coming holiday season.


If you like dark chocolate, cappuccino, and walnuts, then you’re going to enjoy these.  The recipe is simple, and the results are delicious.

The secret behind these cookies are the dark chocolate cappuccino flavored Ovation bits which can be ordered through Sweet Works Candy by the box, or bulk.

Walnut & Chocolate Cappuccino Chunk Cookies

1/2 c. margarine, softened

1/2 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 1/3 c. all-purpose flour, plus 2 tablespoons

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 c. Ovation Cappuccino Bits

1/4 c. chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

In a large bowl, add margarine, sugars, egg, and vanilla.  Beat with electric mixer until light and creamy.  Add flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder; mix completely.  Fold in cappuccino bits and walnuts.

Drop by tablespoon onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, or baking stones.  Bake for 10-12 minutes until light, golden brown.

Cool  slightly before transferring to a baking rack.

Makes about 1.5 dozen cookies.

I used my baking stones to bake these cookies on.

These cookies would make a great gift packaged in a pretty coffee mug, with a pound of coffee, or simply put the dry ingredients it in a decorated mason jar with the instructions, and let the recipient of the gift make their own fresh-baked cookies.
