  • MAKE-AHEAD

These chewy, fudgy, almost flourless cookies have rich chocolate flavor and a great nutty crunch.

  1. 3/4 cup pine nuts
  2. 1/2 pound bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  3. 1/2 stick unsalted butter, cubed
  4. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  5. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  7. 2 large eggs
  8. 3/4 cup superfine sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 325° and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large 
skillet, toast the pine nuts over moderate heat, tossing occasionally, until they are golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the pine nuts to paper towels to drain and cool completely. 

  2. Meanwhile, in a large heatproof bowl set over a medium saucepan of simmering water, melt the chopped chocolate with the butter, stirring occasionally, until smooth, 5 minutes; let cool completely. 

  3. In a small bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar at medium-high speed until thick and pale, about 3 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the melted chocolate, then fold in the dry ingredients. Stir in the pine nuts. 

  4. Bake the cookies in 2 batches: Scoop 1-tablespoon mounds of dough onto the 
prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 12 minutes, until the cookies are dry around the edges and cracked on top; shift the sheets halfway through baking. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough. Transfer the cookies 
to a rack to cool completely before serving.
Make Ahead The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
