Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies

I have a love/hate relationship with Jon’s baking. I love it because the results are always so good. I hate it because then I can’t resist eating more than my fair share. These Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies are no exception- soft, chewy, chocolatey- they basically have everything you need. The addition of the walnuts adds a delightful crunch. Careful, these cookies are truly you-can’t-eat-just-one caliber.


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup crushed walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Melt the butter in a small, microwave safe bowl. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter (still warm) with cocoa powder and whisk until very smooth. Whisk in sugar, vanilla extract and buttermilk. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until no streaks of flour remain. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop dough in 1-inch balls onto prepared baking sheet, leaving about two inches between cookies to allow for spread. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are set around the edges.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies
