What you will need:
1 1/4 cup of all purpose flour. 1/4 cup of unsweented cocoa powder.1 cup of granulated sugar.3/4 cup of butter (melted, then cooled).1/4 teaspoon of salt.1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.1 tablespoon of almond extract (pure or artificial).2 eggs.Powdered sugar (aka confectioners' sugar).A medium bowl and a large bowl.Either a small-muffin pan, or whatever other pan with shallow dishes desired (nonstick or oiled; doesn't matter). You may need more than one.
Preheat oven to 375 F (190.6 Celsius).Stir together flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder in medium bowl.Beat sugar and eggs in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is light in colour and falls in wide-ish ribbons from beaters.Beat in dry mixture at intervals on low speed, until well blended (no chunks!).Beat in melted butter and almond extract until just blended.Spoon tablespoonfuls of batter into pan dishes; make sure not to fill too much, as the cookies do rise.
