I see them all the time whenever there are homemade cookies around-
I remember my neighbor used to make these growing up.
They are like a mini brownie
1/2 cup butter
1 2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 bars of unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Cream together butter, sugar & vanilla. Beat in eggs & melted chocolate. Wisk together dry ingredients & add alternating with milk. Add nuts if desired. Chill for a couple of hours- or overnight. Form into 1" balls & roll in powdered sugar. Place on GREASED cookie sheet 2-3 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. cool for a minute on the pan then transfer to a cooling rack.
*spray the pan with non stick cooking spray in between each batch for easier removal.
