A Chocoholic's Dream Cookie

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Here's the Recipe:

Makes about 4 dozen cookies

4 oz unsweetened chocolate
6 T butter
2 cups (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
½ cup flour
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ t baking powder
¼ t salt
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 ½ t vanilla extract

Chop unsweetened chocolate. Cut butter into pieces. Melt chopped chocolate, butter, and 1 cup chocolate chips in a small pan in oven, stirring occasionally. Cool.

Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Beat sugar and eggs about 2 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Stir in chocolate mixture, then flour mixture and finally the remaining 1 cup chocolate chips.

Cover and chill until firm, at least 1 hour. Dough must be very cold.

Heat oven to 350 F. Shape into approximately 1 inch balls. It may help to wet hands. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart, until puffed, about 10 minutes.
