I read that piece of advice from a book. Books are very useful, not kindles...books.
|No ingredient picture this time, just some chocolate.|
I'm not really missing the ingredient picture anyway.
|Throw in some powdered sugar and I think it's time for a metaphor.|
Chocolate is an army of gumdrops marching on your tongue.
|Ok, that really wan't a good metaphor, but that's what you get when you search for ideas on Wikipedia. (sigh)|
|This is not a hands-on-experiment. It's more of a spoons-on-experiment....|
if such a thing exists.
And yes there is such a thing according to Grackipedia,
my version of Wikipedia.
4 Tbsp. butter (half a stick)
2 squares (1oz. each) unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Bowl of powdered sugar
1. Melt 4 Tbsp. butter and 2 squares (1 oz. each) unsweetened chocolate together over low heat; stir in 1 cup of sugar; cool.
2. Sift 1 cup flour, measure, then sift again with 1 tsp. baking powder and a dash of salt into cooled chocolate mixture; add 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until well mixed.
3. Drop dough, 1/2 tsp. at a time, into powdered sugar; roll to cover all sides. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes in hot oven (400 degrees). Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.
This is an old-fashion original cookie recipe that I found while going through my Grandmother's things. It came from a newspaper dated April 1954 which took me awhile to figure out due to all the stains and spots on the old newspaper clipping.
(hint) Take a day (or 2 or 3 or 4...) to sort through all of your stuff, because when your family has to go through it, (aka me) it takes a reaaallly loooong time. Just a helpful hint!
Buuuut leave some nifty stuff behind so your family can enjoy it.
