Chocolate Butter Cookies

Chocolate Butter Cookies
Makes about 2 dozen cookies

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Combine the butter, sugar, egg and chocolate in a medium bowl. Add the flour, baking powder and vanilla; mix well. Cover the dough and refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with a cookie cutter. Place the cookies about one inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
