Chocolate Truffle Cookies


I was disappointed with the look of my last chocolate cookie although it tasted great.  I decided to try another recipe for some of my grandchildren.  I made a chocolate truffle cookie and so far, I have only tasted one while it was warm.  It was unbelievable both texture wise and flavor.


Chocolate Truffle Cookies (allrecipes.com)

Ingredients:

4 (1 ounce) squares, unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 
1/2 cup gluten-free flour mixture
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Method:
In the microwave, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup of the chocolate chips, and the butter stirring occasionally until smooth. 

Remove from heat and set aside to cool. 

In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until thick and pale, about 2 minutes. 

Stir in the vanilla and the chocolate mixture until well mixed. 

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into the chocolate mixture. 

Fold in remaining 1 cup chocolate chips. 

Cover dough and chill for at least an hour or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Roll chilled dough into 1 inch balls. 

Place on ungreased cookie sheets so they are 2 inches apart.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven. 

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Eat and enjoy.
