DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the shortening and chocolate in a bowl over hot water; cool slightly.
  • Take off heat and using an electric mixer, blend in the sugar.
  • Beat in eggs--one at a time beating for 1 minute after each addition.
  • Add the vanilla.
  • Add the flour, powder, and salt and mix well.
  • Chill for 15 minutes as the dough will be very soft.
  • Put the confectioners sugar in a shallow bowl so you can put the rolled balls in it.
  • Roll dough into balls the size of a walnut and roll in the confectioners sugar.
  • Bake in a 300 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.
  • Should be soft to touch in oven; should be chewy when done.
