Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until slightly set. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet then transfer to wire rack. Frost cookies while still warm.
1 oz semisweet chocolate, melted with cream 3 Tbls heavy cream 1 Cup powdered Sugar 1 tsp vanilla ( I use Madagascar Bourbon, Pure Vanilla Bean Paste. This is a very aromatic vanilla that lends itself well to baking and home made ice creams. I have found that it's pure flavor and flecks of vanilla bean give my baking a gourmet flair.)
Mix vanilla in with cream and chocolate mixture. While this is still warm beat in powdered sugar. When smooth and still warm spread over cookies.
