Chocolate Filling

Melt chocolate chips in microwave. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop 1/2 to 3/4" mounds on ungreased cookie sheet. Smooth and shape with finger to round. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm.

Cookie Shell Dough

Roll out thin. Cut 2 1/4" rounds with a cutter. Place a mound of chocolate in a round. Mold shell around chocolate to cover completely, pinching to seal. Pinch off excess, if necessary, and re-roll. Bake 375 degrees ~8 minutes. When cool, dust with powdered sugar (or roll in sugar, if preferred.)
