Plain chocolate

Bitter cooking chocolate

Plain flour

Salt

Unsalted butter, at room temperature

Vanilla essence

Finely chopped walnuts

Method :
  • Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler, or in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, sift together the flour and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter until soft. Add the sugar and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy. Mix the eggs and vanilla essence, then gradually stir into the butter mixture. Stir in the chocolate, then the flour. Finally, stir in the nuts.
  • Divide the mixture into four equal parts, and roll each into a 5cm diameter log. Wrap tightly in foil and chill or freeze until firm.
  • Preheat the oven to 190oC/375oF/Gas 5. Grease two baking sheets. With a sharp knife, cut the logs into 5mm slices.
  • Place the circles on the baking sheets and bake until lightly colored, about 10 minutes.
  • Using a palette knife, transfer to a wire rack to cool.
