3/8-1/2 Cup or 80-100g Golden Brown Sugar
1 Egg Yolk
1 tsp Vanilla Paste
1 Cup/125g All-Purpose Flour, sifted

Preheat the oven to 375˚F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt. Add the chocolate chips and walnut, and stir to combine.
In a separate mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar, vanilla paste. Add the egg yolk and beat again. Add the dry ingredients and mix well to form a soft dough. Roll the mixture into 12 balls and divide between the baking trays. Use the palm of your hand to press the dough down lightly and bake for about 11 to 12 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through the baking time, then remove from the oven and set the baking sheet on a wire rack for 5 minutes to cool. Use a spatula to transfer the cookies on the rack to cool completely.
