Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4 dozen
Ingredients
  • 1⅓ cups (6 ounces) all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon table salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 ounces (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1⅓ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (1½ ounces) natural, unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted if lumpy
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
Instructions
  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Line 2 or more cookie sheets with parchment or non-stick baking liners.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk until well blended.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar and cocoa powder. Using an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat on medium speed until well blended, about 4 minutes. Scrape down the bowl and the beater.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time mixing until blended after each addition. Add the vanilla along with the last egg.
  6. Continue mixing on medium until well blended, about 1 minute. Add the cooled, melted chocolate and mix until just blended, about 30 seconds.
  7. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until the mixture is well blended, about 1 minute.
  8. Using a 2 tablespoon mini ice-cream scoop, shape the dough into balls and arrange about 1½ inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake, one sheet at a time, until the cookies are puffed and tops are cracked and look dry, about 11 to 13 minutes.
  9. When the cookies are just out from the oven, make a small, deep well in the center of the cookies using the rounded side of a ½ teaspoon measure or the end of a thick handled wooden spoon.
  10. Let the cookies sit for 5 minutes then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.
  11. Fill the cookies and serve immediately or cover and keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze up to 1 month before filling and serving.
