Flourless Nut & Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Jody Schmoll, a friend and former Camden innkeeper, gave me a recipe for her flourless-peanut butter cookies. I took her base recipe and embellished them with lots of nuts and some chocolate chunks and came up with these cookies. The first time I tasted them I unanimously proclaimed these as my new favorite cookies. This cookie dough is quite coarse and when you make the balls, they may need a little extra effort to get them to hold together, but they are well worth the effort.
