DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water; set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar together.
  • Mix in the egg and vanilla. On low speed, slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and combine well.
  • Place one half of the dough on a sheet of waxed paper.
  • Stir the cooled melted chocolate into the remaining half of the dough.
  • Put the chocolate dough onto the waxed paper alongside the vanilla dough and press the two together to form a ball.
  • Knead just long enough to achieve a marbleized effect.
  • Shape the dough into a 1 by 12-inch log.
  • Wrap tightly in waxed paper or plastic wrap and twist the ends closed.
  • Chill for 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F
  • Lightly grease the baking sheets.
  • Cut the chilled dough into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for about 8 to 9 minutes, or until the cookies are set but not browned.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
