“This is sometimes known as meatball cookies. A must in our family at Christmas. Feel free to cut recipe in half. I usually bake about 150 dozen cookies at Xmas time to give away in cookie trays.” - by MYRAMANI
Original recipe yields 14 dozen
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter and milk. Cook until melted, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Stir in the milk mixture by hand until the dough is firm and not tacky. Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Roll the dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and place onto the prepared cookie sheets. These cookies do not spread much, so you can place them fairly close together.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks. Glaze with a thin confectioners' icing when cool to preserve freshness.

"My Nana from Calabria brought over a wonderful recipe for cookies that we made at Thanksgiving and stored in bins (looked like the large popcorn bins that are used today)over the holidays. We all had ..." See morethis recipe, I know my twin still uses this but I think the others in my family may have lost the recipe. This is almost the closest to it. We used chopped maraschino cherries, raisins Allspice, citron and 10 eggs in our recipe. They are wonderful. The cookies have always been included in wedding trays and of course on the holidays. "
