Sugar-Coated Chocolate Pixies

This is one of my kids favorite cookies. The toughest part about making them is not eating all the batter!

Size: Makes about 4 dozen tiny cookies.

1/4 cup butter
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
powdered sugar


In a saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over a low heat. Stir while it melts and be careful–it’s burns easily. Cool.

In large bowl, beat chocolate mixture, 1 cup of flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder and salt. Stir in remaining 1 cup of flour.

Cover and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.

Preheat over to 300 degrees. Shape dough into 1″ balls. Grease cookie sheet. Roll in powdered sugar. Place on a baking sheet 2″ apart.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove and cool.
