Chocolate Melting Moments
1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon butter
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons hot coffee or water
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment
paper. Beat 1 cup butter, confectioners' sugar and cocoa in large bowl until
fluffy. Blend in cake flour until smooth. Shape dough into marble-size balls.
(If dough is too soft to handle, cover and refrigerate until firm.) Place 2"
apart on prepared cookie sheets. Press center of each ball with knuckle of
finger to make indentation. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set. Remove to wire
racks. Prepare Mocha Filling. While cookies are still warm, spoon about 1/2
teaspoonful filling into center of each. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
MOCHA FILLING: Melt 1 tablespoon butter and chocolate in small heavy saucepan
over low heat; stir until melted. Blend in confectioners' sugar, vanilla and
enough coffee to make a smooth filling.
