Dark chocolate cookies with walnuts

These cookies are going to be amazing for watching my weight. Seriously. They're not low-fat or low-sugar, but they are HIGH in chocolate flavor. Perfect for quenching chocolate cravings because they are deep, deep chocolate. Not in a rich, cloying way, but in a very satisfying way. Normally I can eat (insert high number here) cookies in a sitting, but I ate two of these and my craving was perfectly satisfied.

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
¼ cup butter
1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup walnuts coarsely chopped

Cream the butter. Add the sugar, then cream for two minutes. Mix in the egg. In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Stir into the creamed mixture, then stir in the walnuts.

Spoon the dough onto a cookie sheet. Space the cookies abour 2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated oven at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until golden and browned on the edges.
