  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add cocoa powder, eggs and vanilla; mix until combined.
  2. Combine flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Gradually add to butter mixture.
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Using your thumb, press a thumbprint into the center; fill with a piece of chocolate and fold dough over to cover chocolate.
  4. Place balls 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are firm and tops are soft. Remove cookies to a cooling rack; dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve warm, if possible. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
  5. To reheat cookies, place cookie on microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 5 seconds, or until cookie is slightly warm.

This was an AMAZING recipe! Definitely tasted like something at a restaurant. I think our cookies turned out a little flat because I didn't add enough baking powder (I just relied on my self-r...

This is a really good recipe. It's not that hard to make and it tastes good. The only problem I have with it is the tediousness of adding the chocolate bits into the dough.
