"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
4 (1 oz) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
Granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 375. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon, and salt. Work shortening in a bowl until creamy. Add the 1 cup of sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Stir in melted chocolate and vanilla. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk, mixing well after each addition. Drop by slightly rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 15 minutes until firm to the touch. Remove cookies to a rack and sprinkle tops with granulated sugar while they are still hot. Or, if preferred, cool completely and frost with icing and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Make 4 dozen cookies.
