These are wonderful cookies! I made them for some friends and nearly all of them were eaten up! I made them exactly as the recipe says, except that after they had cooked, I sprinkled some extra powdered sugar on. These are definitely a keeper, and I can't wait to make again!

Elegant looking cookie with very little effort. You roll them in to a ball, put them on a cookie sheet and a little oven elf forms them in to these beautiful puffy, crackly, perfectly shaped chocolate bites. A hint...make sure you completely cover in the powdered sugar even if it seems like too much. The sugar is what makes them so pretty and it doesn't make them overly sweet. Thanks for another great cookie for my Christmas baskets!
