How to make it

  • 1. In a small saucepan over very low heat, combine the butter and chocolate. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until they are melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • 2. Pour the chocolate mixture into a large bowl and allow to cool slightly. Stir in the granulated sugar until evenly moistened. Add the egg and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy.
  • 3. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to the chocolate, sugar and egg mixture and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  • 4. Preheat an oven to 375°F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • 5. Remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator. Shape the dough into ¾-inch balls and roll in the confectioners’ sugar to coat completely. Place the balls about 1 ½ inches apart on the prepared pans. Bake the cookies until puffed and cracked on top, about 10 - 12 minutes. They may appear underdone in the center but will turn crisp as they cool.
  • 6. Allow to cool on the pans for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 42 cookies.
