  • Cream the butter or margarine with the brown sugar until light. Add the egg and mix well.

  • Stir in the flour, ground cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Mix in the nuts and the 4 ounces of the bittersweet, milk and white chocolates.

  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool slightly. Dip cooled cookies into the Three Chocolate Glaze.

  • To Make Three Chocolate Glaze: Heat 1 teaspoon of the shortening with bittersweet chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Dip each cookie 1/2 inch deep into chocolate along one edge. Repeat with remaining shortening and chocolates. Rotate dipped edge of cookie for each type of chocolate.

It was good but I don't think I'll make it again - I think cinnamon was really at the fore instead of the three chocolates. Not that cinnamon and chocolate are a bad combination - but it's very strong. Read More

Good cookie. I didn't bother with the glaze and I left out the walnuts because my son hates nuts. Will probably reduce the amount of brown sugar next time because they were very sweet. Read More

Yum what can I say! I loved the taste of the cinnamon... a sophisticated taste. I altered the recipe slightly and used butterscotch chips chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. I didn't dip it in chocolate but instead drizzled chocolate and white chocolate over the tops of the cookies. Read More

This is the fourth New Years that I'm making these cookies and I think it's only fair to give a new review (see below for original). I guess the first time I used walnuts and then I once left them out and the cookie is GREAT. I can't even remember how many people begged for the recipe and how many requests for these cookies I get. Gift giving is extremely simplified when you have a recipe like this on hand:) Thank you so much Lydia! (original post: Not at all what I was expecting - you put in nuts and that's all you can taste...) Read More

These cookies are AMAZING! My son made them as part of our cinnamon themed Top Chef meal. We used pecans instead of walnuts and to make it easy I just bought bittersweet milk and white chocolate chips. We didn't even get around to the chocolate glaze - they were too good to wait. I'm sharing the recipe with all my friends! Read More
