- 4 squares unsweetened chocolate
- 3/4 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 350°F, microwave chocolate and butter in large bowl for 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour; mix well. Refrigerate 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
Shape dough into one inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on parchment paper covered baking sheets.
At this point if you choose to decorate your cookies with coloured sugars or small dragees, simply make a slight thumb print on top of the doughball and place decor on top.
Bake 8 minutes, or just until set (do not overbake). Let stand on baking sheet for one minute, transfer to wire racks. Cool completely, and enjoy!
Makes about 65 cookies.
