Mix together cornstarch, salt, cocoa, and powdered sugar. Add egg whites and stir. You'll think there's not enough liquid, but I promise it'll suddenly start looking like fudge before long! As soon as it does, add walnuts and stir.
Cover two cookie sheets or pans with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop (like an ice cream scoop, only much smaller) put 8 balls of dough onto each cookie sheet.
Bake at 300 degrees F for about 18 minutes, until they look a little shiny and cracked.
Cool for a bit if you can stand waiting. Go on, try, I dare you! When hot, they are moist and very fudgy inside, with a touch of crispiness on the outside. When fully cooled, they settle into a rich chewy cookie center.
Hint: I like to toast the walnuts before putting into cookies, if there's time. To hurry it along, I often chop the nuts, put them in a low microwave safe dish to zap for a minute, stir, and repeat this about 3 more times or until they start to dry a little. Don't microwave too long, it's fine if they're not fully toasted.

Heat chocolate over low heat until melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool
Stir together flour and baking powder. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, oil, milk, vanilla, and melted chocolate.
Separate the white of ONE of the eggs from the yolk and set aside. Add the yolk and two remaining eggs to the chocolate mixture. Add flour and beat until well mixed. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours or until easy to handle.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with your fingers. Beat reserved egg white until soft peaks form. Gradually add 2 Tbsp. sugar, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Fold in coconut. Top each flattened ball of dough with 1/2 tsp. of the coconut mixture.
Bake in a 373 degree F oven for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are done and tops are lightly brown. Remove and cool.

I am looking for a recipe for Fudge Fancies. I don't know if it is particular to the Northeast or not, but I cannot find anything like it on the internet or in my cookbooks. Does anybody out there have the secret recipe for these cookies?

I have never heard of them but they sound good.
This is the first one that came up on search:
It would narrow it down more if you could describe it or name what you (thought) was in it. There also are a few online I saw called Fudge Fancifuls but it was a bar cookie.
It's a thick vanilla cookie with a slight amount of chew and always with a mound of dark chocolate frosting on top. Every bakery and supermarket here has them but how to make them!
More like this one then?
I don't think I have ever seen such a big batch for cookies!
EDIT: Or maybe this one and adapt it a little:
Oh I can't wait to try these! Thank you so much!
1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. soda
2 2/3 c. flour
1 c. nuts, chopped
Mix and chill. Roll into logs. Roll logs in nuts. Chill and slice. Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Frost with chocolate frosting.
I was looking at the Karo site for a recipe to use up some dark corn syrup and saw this recipe that sounded in the same vein possibly with a little tweaking:
Chocolate Fudge Thumbprint Cookies:
Lynn, Try FUDGE FANCY at cooks.com. It has a quantity recipe that seems like a bakery recipe. You'd have to cut it down. And yes, there is really nothing like them. I think it is more local than even a northeast thing.
While in Disneyland, I bought an awesome giant cookie with white chocolate chunks and chunks of soft white chocolate fudge baked into it. It was very rich and creamy, and absolutely delicious. Does anyone have a similar recipe please? The wrapper had Mickey Mouse on it.
