Chocolate Truffle Cookies

We had been on a short vacation to India for three weeks and I find it so hard to concentrate on the blog. Each and everytime I feel I have 1008 reasons to ignore the blog ;), but still somehow manage to post one recipe in a month ;). Our Christmas tree is up and lighted  and here comes the holiday recipe series :).

These cookies are extremely chocolatey ,crunchy on the outside and soft inside.And, they can be easily baked.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies
Makes about 30 cookies
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 tbsp butter ( diced)
1 egg,beaten
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup powdered(icing) sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree Farenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil.
2.Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder in a bowl and stir in the sugar.
3. Add butter and vanilla extract beat until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the beaten egg to the flour mixture and stir with a spatula, do not overbeat. Cover tightly with a plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
4. Put the icing sugar into a bowl. Make small balls( key lime size) and drop into the icing sugar. Toss until thickly coated, then on the baking sheets.
