Chocolate Sugar Christmas Cookie Recipe
3 ozs. unsweetened chocolate
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Melt chocolate and butter in large bowl in microwave (low power, about 2 minutes). Stir well.
Stir 1 cup sugar into melted chocolate mixture until well blended. Stir in egg and vanilla until completely blended. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Shape dough into small balls. Roll in sugar. (Alternately, roll out to 1/4" thick and cut with cookie cutters.)
Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. (If flatter, crisper cookies are desired, flatten balls with bottom of drinking glass.)
Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. Decorate with icing and sprinkles, if desired.
Variation: Make indentation in each ball; fill center with jam. Bake as directed.
Yield: About 40 cookies.
