Chocolate Pixies

Chocolate Pixies are chocolate cookies that are rolled in powdered sugar before baked. My Grandma made this recipes for years for Christmas. She always kept them in Christmas cookie tins and had them on the counter whenever we would visit her. They are delicious and Christmastime requires for me to make them and remember my dear Grandmother.
