1 cup sugar
3/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
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.
