- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2/3 cup grated semisweet chocolate
- 1 cup pine nuts, toasted and lightly chopped
- 2 1/4 cups cake flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
With an electric mixer, in a mediumsize bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the vanilla, grated chocolate, and pine nuts. Mix in the flour and salt. Chill the dough.
When ready to bake, roll out the dough, on a floured surface, to a 1/4inch thickness. Cut out the cookies with a 2inch round cookie cutter. Gather the scraps together and reroll the dough to cut out more cookies. Place slightly apart on a nonstick baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are dry and firm. When cool, dust the cookies with the powdered sugar.
