Tatus (Italian Chocolate Cookies)
Family Tested & Approved
baking powder, rounded
(16 ounces) hershey's chocolate syrup
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients. Set aside.
In mixer, beat eggs. Add shortening and sugar, mix until combined. Add chocolate syrup and beat until smooth. Incorporate dry ingredients and stir just until combined. (Do not over-mix).
Refrigerate dough for about an hour to reduce stickiness and make it easier to roll.
Roll into small balls (about 1 inch) and bake for 8 minutes. Do not over-bake.
Once cooled, dip tops in glaze made of confectioners' sugar and milk (sorry, I never measure this) and allow to dry completely.
