Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball, flatten it slightly and place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining mixture, placing the cookies about 1" apart from each other.
  4. Bake the cookies for 15~16 minutes or until firm. Remove onto a cooling rack and let the cookies cool completely.
  5. Make the Icing: Combine confectioners sugar, cocoa powder and 1tbsp water until combined and forms a thick paste. Add 1tsp water at a time to make sure that the consistency is thick.
  6. Immediately spread over the cooled cookies and place a walnut on top. Let the icing harden for a couple of minutes before eating.
