Since I'm a "thrifter"...and has mentioned about a 100th time, that I got this GEM of a cookbook for only 79cents...which was the cost of paperback books, about 3 years ago!...someone obviously donated this GEM of a fabulous book...which you will never find again, at this price...anywhere!!! My lucky day! I have mentioned a few times that this is my "bible cookbook"...and it is!

Chocolate Drop Cookies
How to Cook Everything...by Mark Bittman
adapted from the...Butter Drop Cookies
2 cups all-purpose four
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
8 Tbsp. unsalted butter softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk, plus more, if needed
For Chocolate Drop Cookies
melt 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, and add to the mixture, after combining wet, and dry ingredients.

To combine the ingredients by hand, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl. Cream the butter with a fork, then, mash in the sugar until well blended. Stir in the vanilla and the egg, then about half the flour mixture.
Add the milk, then the remaining flour, then a little more milk if necessary, to make a soft batter that can be dropped from a spoon.
For the Drop Chocolate Cookies:
Melt 1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate, and add to the mixture, after combining wet, and dry ingredients.
Drop rounded teaspoons of the batter onto parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, or until edges are browned. Let each sheet sit on a rack for 2 minutes before removing the cookies with a spatula, and cooling them on a rack. Store in a covered container at room temperature, for no more than a day or two. Be sure to refrigerate them, afterwards!
