Christmas Cookie Recipe Party: Brownie Drops

I'm in the midst of my cookie baking. These are an old family tradition - tasty and chocolatey! AND they are really easy and quick to make - so I can bake up a batch or two in a flash.

Brownie Drops
2 (4-ounce) bars German Sweet Chocolate
1T. butter
2 eggs
3/4 C. sugar
1/4 C. unsifted all-purpose flour
1/4 t. baking powder
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/8 t. salt
1/2 t. vanilla extract
3/4 C. finely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt chocolate and butter in double boiler over hot water. Stir. Cool.

In large mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy, then add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until thickened (5 minutes in electric mixer). Blend in chocolate.

Add flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; blend. Stir in vanilla and nuts. Grease cookie sheet. Drop teaspoonfuls of batter onto cookie sheet. Bake until cookies feel 'set' when very lightly touched - 8 to 10 minutes.

Makes about 36 cookies.

They'll look a bit like this when done:
