Triple Chocolate Cookies

The Altitude Adjustment Section
Because Mom is here I have no choice but to make a chocolate recipe — it seems only fair. This cookie recipe has three kinds of chocolate in it so it’s only for the hardcore.

Ingredients
8 ounces semi sweet chocolate
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup AP flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1cup pecans
1 cup walnuts

Procedure
Preheat oven to 350. In a double boiler, melt the semi sweet and bittersweet chocolate along with the butter over simmering water. Stir till smooth and let cool. In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla until thick. Combine egg mixture with chocolate mixture and then add flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop tablespoons of cookie dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. This recipe makes 3 dozen yummy cookies.
