Santa Fe Chocolate Wafers Recipe

May 3rd, 2015 by alice  Tags: , , | Print This Post Print This Post

INGREDIENTS

  1. 1cup siftedall-purpose flour
  2. 1/2teaspoonbaking soda
  3. 1/8teaspoonsalt
  4. 1/4lbbutter(1 stick)
  5. 6ouncessemisweet chocolateor bittersweet chocolate(I prefer 80% chocolate)
  6. 1/3cupgranulated sugar
  7. 1/4cuplight corn syrup
  8. 1teaspoonvanilla extract
  9. 1extra large egg

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  2. Sift together dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. Cut butter into ½-inch slices, and add to medium saucepan over low heat.
  4. Add the chocolate, sugar, and corn syrup, stirring until smooth.
  5. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes; add vanilla extract and egg, stirring until smooth.
  6. Gently add in flour mixture, until once again smooth.
  7. You can go ahead and bake them off right here, but I prefer to refrigerate the mixture for 20 or so minutes; the cookies will hold their shapes better.
  8. Drop a rounded teaspoonful of batter onto a silpat or parchment paper-covered baking sheet, pressing down slightly to flatten.
  9. The cookies puff up as they bake, and will be finished when they have flattened, about 10-15 minutes.
  10. I like to under bake these just a bit, but be careful about over baking- the chocolate will taste burnt.
  11. Let the cookies sit for a minute on the sheets before removing to a cooling tray.
  12. Store airtight.
