  1. Melt the chocolate and shortening in a saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and mix in sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the chocolate mixture and nuts. Chill dough in the refrigerator 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  3. Place confectioners' sugar in a bowl. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Roll dough balls in confectioners' sugar to coat. Arrange 3 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. The cookies will look soft when removed from the oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!

WONDERFUL! Made these for a party and they were the first to go (and there were lots of other cookies there!) I followed exact but added a bit more flour because some people mentioned they spr...

I've been making a similar cookie for years, which I got off of a box of margarine. The only difference is that I use melted margarine instead of shortening and I omit the nuts. They are easy an...

Delicious cookie and very attractive. I used butter instead of shortening as I avoid transfat. They spread quite a bit when you use butter and you MUST use either a silpat mat or parchment pa...

These cookies were awesome. They were not dry. I will make these again and again
