1 cup sugar
2 T. butter, softened
1 t. vanilla
2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup flour
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Mix together sugar, butter, vanilla and chocolate. Stir in eggs, one at a time. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours. (I never let it go much more than an hour.)
Roll dough into small balls, roll those balls in powdered sugar. Place on a baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes at 350.
I'm not sure where I found this original recipe. It might be Betty Crocker, but the recipe on their website is different, so I don't know. But, it's divine. The original recipe stated to bake 10 to 12 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched. I bake mine for 10 minutes. In my oven, that makes them chewy and gooey on the inside, but crisp on the outside. Just the way we like them. Almost like a truffle.
