"Hi Suzanne, I have lost your recipe for the chocolate cookies you roll in confectioner's sugar before baking--the one you posted months ago. I'd love to make them with my grandchildren. Could you possibly get the recipe to me? Thank you."--Amy B.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
6 T butter
3 squares (3 ounces) unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp real vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt Confectioners' sugar
Cream the butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Add the melted chocolate and sugar and blend well. Stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and blend well.
Refrigerate 3 hours, or until firm. Shape the dough into balls about one inch. Dredge each ball in confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar), coating thoroughly. Put on cookie sheet, two inches apart. Cookies may seem slightly underdone, but will firm up after cooking, when they cool.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes on a greased cookie sheet or use parchment paper.
