Ingredients

¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup walnuts
pieces, toasted
4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
cut into pieces
1/ 4 cup canola oil
½ cup granulated sugar replacement
*
½ cup brown sugar, light
*
1 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
or bittersweet, or chocolate chips, melted , null, null
6 tablespoons apricot preserves (jam)
or blueberry jelly
*

Directions

Position rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 375°F.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl until well combined.

Grind walnuts in a food processor until they resemble coarse meal.

Beat butter, oil, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until almost creamy—the mixture may still be a little grainy.

Beat in egg and vanilla; scrape down the sides and beat in melted chocolate and the ground nuts.

Stir in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon until just incorporated.

Roll 1 tablespoon dough into a ball, place on the prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly until it looks like a deflated basketball.

Continue with the remaining dough, spacing the cookies 2 inches apart.

Bake the cookies for 6 minutes.

Remove from the oven and gently press your thumb or the end of a wooden spoon in the center of each cookie.

Place ½ teaspoon jam in each indentation.

Bake until the jam is melted and the cookie is set but still a little soft, 8 to 10 minutes more.

Cool on the pan for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Let the pan cool for a few minutes before baking another batch.
