Recipe: German Chocolate Walnut Drop Cookies

½ cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 oz. chocolate
1 cup broken walnut meats
1/2 t vanilla
1/4 t salt
2/3 cup flour
Candied cherries

Cream sugar and butter, add eggs one by one, melted chocolate and walnut meats, then vanilla and flour sifted with salt. Drop from teaspoon on cookie sheet and top with bit of candied cherry. Bake in a 350 oven for about 15 minutes.

Notes: These will make rich, rather flat cookies, crisp and delicate. For a thicker but tougher cookie, the flour may be increased to a cup or more. These cookies keep well for a short period but must not be allowed to lose their crispness by exposure in humid air.
