Old Fashioned Chocolate Cookies

This delicious Chocolate Cookie recipe was
sent in by Jake and his girlfriend Jackie of San Francisco.
The cookbook Jackie got it from is from her Grandmother,
and dates back to 1940. The book didn't say how many cookies
the recipe makes, so it will be a surprise!!!

1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 Egg
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream butter, add sugar, egg well beaten, salt and chocolate (melted). Beat well and add flour sifted with baking powder, alternately, with milk. Chill several hours, roll very thin, shape with a small cutter, bake in moderate oven, 350'F, 10 Minutes.
