Heritage Chocolate Drop Cookies

After visiting Hilton Head Island last week, I looked through the two cookbooks I have from the Island.  I saw this recipe for chocolate cookies and remembered how good they were when I made them.  I like them because they are drop cookies and are chewy if baked the minimum time of 8 minutes.  I really became inspired again as I looked through the books and I plan to select a recipe to make this coming weekend.  Hilton Head Island has great diversity in restaurants and the food is always such good quality.

Heritage Chocolate Drop Cookies

2 squares chocolate

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

pinch of salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

Put chocolate in a saucepan with 1/4 cup of water; stir over low heat until a paste is formed.  Put sugar and butter in mixing bowl and let stand until soft.  Add egg; mix.  Add chocolate; mix.  Add milk; mix.  Add flavoring; mix thoroughly.  Sift flour, baking powder and salt together and stir into mixture in bowl.  Drop by teaspoonsful onto well-greased baking sheet.  Bake in 375-degree oven until firm to touch, or about 8-12 minutes.
