3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/3 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream

In a bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar, butter, sugar and chocolate until fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well blended on low speed, beat in half of the flour mixture until blended. Beat in theh sour cream, then the remaining flour mixture until well blended. Divide the dough into 4 portions. Cover and chill for 1-3 hours. Preheat the oven to 375 on a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 portion of the dough at a time to about 1/8 inch thick (keep the remaining dough in the refrigerator). Cut the cookies. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Lightly sprinkle with sugar before baking. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the edges feel firm to the touch. Cool the cookies on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.
