½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup sugar
¼ cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
½ tsp baking powder

2.   Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and the salt together. With your hands or a fork, rub butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in chocolate.
3.   Whisk together egg and vanilla. Add egg mixture to chocolate mixture; stir with a fork until mixture is slightly moistened. Form dough into a ball; wrap in plastic; refrigerate 30 minutes.
4.   Shape dough into tablespoon size balls. Roll each in powdered sugar and coat the balls. Place on prepared pans 2″ apart.
5.   Bake until just set but still slightly undercooked, about 10 minutes.
6.   Let cool on sheets 5 minutes and transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
7.   The cookies are best served warm.
