I got the original recipe out of an old cookbook of my mother's. Over the years it's been modified to fit my family's tastes.

My older two kids and I use to make these every year at Christmas. This year I dusted off the old recipe and started making them again


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
  • powdered sugar


  • Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.; stir into creamed mixture. Blend in nuts. (Mixture will be stiff like cookie dough)
  • Drop by teaspoon 2 inches apart on pre-heated standard waffle iron; bake until done, about 1½ minutes. Remove to rack to cook. Sift powdered sugar over cookies. Makes about 48.
  • Store in an airtight contain to keep soft.
