Chocolate Truffle Cookies

These cookies are excellent. I don’t even know if “cookie” is the correct term for them, but neither is just straight “truffle”. The only way to understand them is to eat them. So bake them (preferably right now)- you won’t be sorry. And that’s all I’m saying about them.

(Oh yeah- if you notice some gaps in the process photos, it’s cause I kept forgetting to take pictures- oops.)

Preheat oven to 375* Lightly grease cookie sheets. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar.

Roll cooled cookies in cocoa mixture. If you wanted to get really fancy, you could put the cookies in those little mini cupcake wrappers. That would look really cute and professional.
