These chocolate cookies are rolled in powdered sugar and "crack" when you bake them.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/4 cup butter
- 4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration
Melt butter and chocolate either in a microwave or over low heat on the stove. Allow to cool slightly.
Stir in remaining ingredients, except powdered sugar. Mix well.
Cover dough and chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar to coat heavily. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are set. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on rack.
