Procrastination

I have a million and one things to do in my studio, but today I went toboganning with the kids and made these, a favourite in our family:



Double Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

3 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
white or semi-sweet chocolate chips

Microwave chocolate in small bowl on medium power for 2 minutes. Cool. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla and melted chocolate. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt. Shape dough into 1" (2.5 cm) balls; roll in additional sugar.

Place on ungreased baking sheets. Use handle of wooden spoon or your thumb to make deep indentations in centre of each ball. Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 8-10 minutes, or until set.

Place a few chocolate chips in centre of each warm cookie. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
