  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray cookie sheets with non-stick baking spray.
  • 2
    Beat shortening with brown sugar until well blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each. Melt unsweetened chocolate squares and add slowly while continuing to beat batter. Add vanilla, baking powder, salt, and flour.
  • 3
    Optional: Stir in 1 cup of finely chopped walnuts, or 1 cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, if desired.
  • 4
    Using a 1-1/2 inch cookie scoop (or tablespoon), drop cookies onto prepared baking sheets. Bake at 350° F for 10 minutes.
  • 5
    While cookies bake, prepare icing: Add 1 tbsp water to 1/2 cup powdered sugar and stir until smooth. Add more water, 1 tsp at a time, if needed, but keep icing rather stiff. Remove cookies to a cooling rack and cool 1 minutes. While still warm, frost with about 1 tsp of icing mixture.
