  1. Pinch off some of the chocolate dough and roll in between your palms into 1 inch diameter balls.  Make sure you form an even number of balls.  Flatten each into a disk with the bottom of measuring cup until dough is 1/3 inch thick.
  2. Place on baking pan lined with parchment.

  1. Bake for 10-13 minutes.
  2. Remove cookies from baking pan onto a cool surface.
