Fudge Delices


1 cup sifted all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 1/3 tablespoons cold butter, (2 2/3 ounces) cut into 1-inch pieces
1 egg
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg


Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles corn meal. In a small bowl, beat the egg lightly and stir it into the flour mixture. This can be done in a food processor. Mix together until a dough is formed.

Divide the dough into 23 pieces and form into 23 shells in mini cupcake pans.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For Filling:
Melt chocolate and butter. Add sugar, milk, and vanilla. Add beaten egg and mix until blended. Place a slightly rounded teaspoonful of the filling in each pastry shell. They will be 1/3 to 1/2 full, but the filling will rise during baking. Place both tart pans on a cookie sheet for easier handling.

Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, reversing the pans to insure even browning. Bake until pastry is barely colored. Do not overbake - the filling should remain slightly chewy.

Cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, and then gently remove from pans and place on racks to finish cooling.

Note from Maida Heatter: 23 is a strange number of cookies to make but I like the filling to be generous. If you make 24, the filling is a little too shallow.

Notes: Excellent - Store in freezer
