This recipe is from a little cookie booklet I found in my late mother's "recipe shoebox".  It is dated 1970 and has a price of .35 on the front.

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
2 1/2 squares (2 1/2-oz) unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder

Soften shortening, cream well with sugar.  Add beaten egg, milk and chocolate; mix well.  Stir in sifted dry ingredients.  Chill thoroughly.  Remove small amount of dough at a time and roll out 1/8-in. thick on lightly floured surface. Cut in circles.  Bake on greased cookie sheet 10 min. at 350 degrees.  Makes 11 dozen 2-in. cookies.
