This is my absolutely favorite chocolate cookie:

Chocolate Crinkles

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup Crisco
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 large eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch of salt
6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup powdered sugar


1. Gradually melt chocolate and Crisco in the top of a double boiler. Cool in a large bowl.
2. Beat mixture until well blended. Add vanilla and eggs. Set aside.
3. Use a medium bowl to sift flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir together.
4. Add flour mixture to the chocolate. Stir in chocolate chips.Chill dough for 2 or more hours in the refrigerator.
5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
6. Pour powdered sugar onto a plate. Roll dough into small 1 inch balls. Roll the balls iin the sugar to coat well.
7. Place balls onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Leave 2 inches between the cookies as they will spread during baking.
8. Bake for 10 minutes. The cookies will become firm as they cool.
