Black and White Crinkle Cookies

I have a, it's not a wooden toy block that lucky little kids get to play with. I have writer's block. After blogging for about 3 months my creativity on food ideas is running out of gas. But when you do have writer's block you write about having writer's block which solves your problem for not being able to write anything.
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.

A spoons-on-experiment!
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
dash salt
2 eggs
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.

GB2- God Bless, Go BAKE!!!
