Crisp Chocolate Snaps

I suppose this is a lesser cookie in the Matheson cookiesphere, but I remember them, and I like them. So here they are. From the M-m-m-m More Cookie booklet, published by Pillsbury in 1987.

Crisp Chocolate Snaps

2 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
1 ½ c butter, softened
2 t vanilla
3 eggs
6 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted, cooled
½ t red food coloring, optional
4 c AP flour
2 t soda
1 t salt
Sugar to roll in

Oven to 350. Beat sugars and fat till light and fluffy. Add vanilla, eggs, chocolate, food coloring, blend well. Stir in mixed dries. Can be refrigerated to facilitate easier handling. Roll balls in sugar. Bake 8-12 minutes until set (should flatten). 6 dozen.

I used to make these pretty regularly, more or less in alternation with the ginger ones.
