Baking My Way: Chocolate-Nut Wafers

These cookies have a very interesting taste with the cinnamon in them but it's a refreshing change from the usual chocolate cookie or wafer.  This would be a nice treat to go with tea or coffee.

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts

In large bowl, combine sugar, margarine, chocolate, vanilla and egg; blend well. Add all remaining ingredients; blend well. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into roll 2 inches in diameter. Wrap each roll in plastic wrap; refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.

Heat oven to 400°F. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 400°F. for 6 to 8 minutes or until set. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.

Cool the chocolate slightly before adding to the other ingredients.

Press a nut half (of the same variety used in the dough) into the top of each cookie before baking.
