Quick chocolate cookies

The most delicious aspect about a simple chocolate cookie is its taste and appearance. As it bakes, cracks form in the top of the cookie exposing dark chocolate cracks across the surface of the cookie. Sounds yum? 

2 cups white table sugar 
4 eggs, scrambled 
Melt these two ingredients gently on very low heat so that they don't scald 
¼ cup butter 
4 ounces (4 squares) baking chocolate 
2 cups sifted flour 
2 teaspoons baking powder 
½ teaspoon salt 
½ cup chopped nuts (you can use almonds) 
½ cup confection sugar for the decoration. 

  • Mix the eggs and the white sugar and mix them well. 
  • Then add the melted butter and chocolate after they cool down a little. Later add the flour, baking powder, nuts and salt and stir to combine. 
  • Chill the batter for a few hours or overnight, so that it will be easy to handle for the next step. 
  • Roll the dough into small balls of 1 to 2 tablespoons of batter each. Then roll each ball of batter across a plate dusted with the confection sugar to cover the entire ball. 
  • Place each ball on a greased cookie sheet and bake in a slow oven (300 degrees) for 18-20 minutes.
  • You need to be careful about discolouration of the confection sugar coating. Check out how the cookies expand and crack to give that pretty chocolate design! Serve warm.
