Cookies, Kathy's Chocolate Drop 

I remember my mom and our family friend making these cookies. She measured the cocoa with a coffee mug, and I've never been able to duplicate her cookies until now!

3 c whole wheat flour
( If you're not feeling like healthy
   cookies,  use all white flour! )
3 c white flour
2 t baking soda
2 t salt
2 c milk
4 t vanilla
2 c walnuts, not chopped at all!
3 c brown sugar
1 c butter
1 c lard
4 eggs
3 c baking cocoa

In mixer bowl with cookie paddles, beat brown sugar and butter and lard until fluffy.  Beat in eggs one at a time.  Add cocoa and beat until creamy.  Add flours, soda, salt, milk, vanilla and walnuts all at once and mix on speed #1 until mixed.  Scrape sides and mix a little longer.  Scoop with small scoop onto ungreased cookie sheet, 15 per sheet and bake 350* for 10 minutes.  Leave on cookie sheet just a minute until set then remove to wire racks to cool.  These would be very good frosted, but I probably will never take the time to frost them!  Kathy never did.
