1 1/4 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
confectioners' sugar for decoration
Very tasty! I didn't chill the dough and the cookies turned out just fine. Also I only cooked them 15 minutes.
These cookies were dry and bitter. I think there wasnt enough sugar to sweeten all of the cocoa it calls for. 20 minutes is too long to cook them too.
Delicious! A big hit at my cookie exchange. Pretty, with a chocolate shortbread flavor--rich but not too sweet. I just dusted them with powdered sugar instead of rolling them--it was easier and just as attractive, I think. Don't know why dough has to be refrigerated first--I skipped this step with one batch and the turned out just fine. Highly recommended!
Kids and I made these, delicious! we omited the nuts because they don't like nuts and we substititued some oatmeal to keep the dough stiff, they didn't stay round like a snowball but they got eaten SO fast. Fun and tastey recipe we will make again!
Very tasty cookie. No need to chill before rolling. Will definately use recipe again.
I love these cookies! I know them as an old family tradition. I was given the exact recipe by my mother-in-law, who received it from her grandmother. I was pleasantly surprised to see it on All Recipes. These are a Christmas tradition for us, and I look forward to them every year.
Very good - like someone else mentioned, kind of like chocolate shortbread. I didn't have any nuts so I just left them out. They were a hit at work!
My nieces loved these, however, I have to say I do not care for them at all. THe chocolate somehow removes the original yummness of the cookies original taste. Muddies it sort of. I'll go with the original. But thats just me.
