In a medium, double boiler, add water to bottom pot and combine chocolate and butter in top pot or metal bowl that sits comfortably over pot. Bring water to a boil and lower heat.
Stir chocolate mixture over gently boiling water until melted and combined. Remove top pot/bowl from heat and let cool slightly. Beat in sugar, mixture will be coarse.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Stir in vanilla. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
Stir into chocolate mixture. Blend to make a smooth, yet stiff batter. Gently fold in nuts. Roll dough into an even ball, cut in half.
Roll each half into a 2-inch log; wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap. Chill dough for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 300°F. Unwrap logs and slice into 1/2-inch circles. Using hands, shape chilled dough into 1 1/2-Inch balls.
Arrange on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes, or until firm.
Transfer sheets to a wire rack and let cookies cool on sheets.
Cook's Tip:
Unsweetened chocolate, also known as bitter or baker's chocolate should be used in this recipe. Always use the type of chocolate specified in a recipe. Most types of chocolate are not interchangeable.
Try substituting raspberry, orange, almond or any flavored extract that compliments chocolate in place of vanilla.

      Thank you, I really like the texture of these. With the last batch, I used raspberry extract and it gave the cookie a nice flavor. Next time, trying them with peppermint.
