Christmas Cookies – Day 19

Chocolate Crinkles

2 cups plus 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup confectioners sugar

Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Beat butter and sugar with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and beat until mixture is pale yellow. Add vanilla and chocolate and mix well. Gradually add flour, just to blend. Refrigerate dough at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets, or use parchment paper. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Roll in confectioners sugar, and place about 1 1/2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake about 12 minutes, until tops are puffed and cracked. Cookies will still be soft. Cool on wire rack. You can dip tops in confectioners sugar before serving. Makes about 52 cookies
