Chocolate Crinkles

Chocolate Crinkles - Never Dessert You
    Hi Desseritas.  The holidays are almost here.  I love this time of the year.  But Christmas has been on my mind and of course I made one of the best Christmas cookies - chocolate crinkles.   

   I love these soft fudge chocolate cookies rolled in a confectioner's sugar.   
Chocolate Crinkles - Never Dessert You
                                        What is your favorite holiday dessert?

Chocolate Crinkles

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup shortening
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar

1.  In a small saucepan combine chocolate and shortening.  Heat and stir over low heat until melted and smooth.  Cool for 15 minutes.
2.  In a large bowl combine eggs, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, and salt.  Stir in chocolate mixture.  Gradually add flour, stirring until thoroughly combined.  Cover dough; chill about 2 hours or until dough is easy to handle.
3.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Lightly grease cookie sheets; set aside.  Shape dough into 1-inch balls.  Roll balls into powdered sugar to coat generously.  Place balls 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.  Bake about 15 minutes or until edges are just set.  Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
