I love these cookies, but I have modified the recipe slightly. 1/4 tsp salt 4 oz unsweetened chocolate 1 tsp vanilla 6-8 oz semi-sweet ghirardelli chocolate chips Remove nuts Melt unsweetened chocolate and shortening in Microwave. Beat in sugar. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Mix in vanilla. In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Pour in the egg mixture until smooth. Fold chocolate chips into dough. Chill dough in the refrigerator 3 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lay parchment paper on cookie sheets. Place confectioners' sugar in a bowl. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Roll 1 inch dough balls in confectioners' sugar to coat. Arrange 3 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes in the preheated oven.

Chocolate Banana Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
I followed the recipe substituting the butter for pureed avocado. The cake came out very dense but moist and delicious. I tried the recipe again with some changes in hopes to make it fluffier. I sifted all the dry ingredients together. I separated the eggs, mixing in the yolks at the time when the recipe called for the eggs. I beat the whites into a nice fluff and folded them in at the end before pouring into the pans. I also used sugar in the raw and decreased the sugar by 1/2 cup. The new cake was less dense but still not as fluffy as I would like. It was well received and I have no leftovers. I also added some pureed banana to the frosting recipe (keep in mind that adding the banana required I add more confectioners’ sugar).
