Chocolate volcano cookies

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Squares; (4 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate
½ cup Shortening
2 cups Sugar
4 \N Eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2 cups All-purpose flour
2 teaspoons Baking powder
¼ teaspoon Salt
\N \N Confectioner's sugar

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Melt chocolate and shortening in the top of a double boiler (or in a mixing bowl set in a pan of very warm water).

Add the sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Add the vanilla.

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to thoroughly incorporate.

Chill dough. Roll into small balls, and roll the balls in confectioner's sugar. Place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes.

Do not overbake.

As they bake, the cookies will spread slightly and the tops will crack.
