Chocolate Cookies

Attributed to Neva Radowski. I grew up in Alpena, MI, a city with many people of Polish descent. Names that end in “ski” were pretty common there, so I’m assuming this is from a friend of Mom’s from our Alpena days.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 squares melted chocolate [presumably baking chocolate]
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1.75 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup nuts
[Enough of your favorite frosting to frost the cookies]

To do:
Place butter, sugar, and eggs in bowl and beat until creamy Add melted chocolate. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk. [Flour, then milk, then baking powder, I guess?] Add vanilla and nuts. Chill for a few minutes while you preheat the oven to 400F. Drop from spoon on cookie sheet and bake 12–12 minutes. When cool frost with your favorite frosting. [This seems like gilding the lily, but ok.]
