Best paired with Adam Puchta Signature Port

  •  ½ cup shortening
  • 4 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • Confectioner’s sugar

Melt together shortening and chocolate. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. Add sugar to chocolate, stirring until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each; add vanilla. Add flour mix; blend well. Chill dough for 2-3 hours.

Dip out rounded teaspoons of dough; form into small balls. Roll each in confectioner’s sugar. Place 2-inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375°F for 8-10 minutes — do not over bake, cookies should be soft when taken from oven. Cool cookies on rack.
