Chocolate Peek-A-Boos

1 cup sifted enriched flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine
4 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
About 1/2 of 6-ounce package semisweet chocolate bits

Sift together flour, salt, and sugar. Measure milk into saucepan. Add butter; heat just to boiling point. Add dry ingredients, all at once, to hot liquid, stirring vigorously, until mixture leaves sides of pan in smooth compact ball. Remove from heat.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating vigorously after each addition until mixture is smooth again. Blend in vanilla; mix well.

Drop dough by half teaspoonfuls, 2-inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheet. Place 1 chocolate bit on each cookie. Then cover with a teaspoon of dough. Bake in moderate oven (375 F.) 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired. Cool.

Makes about 4-1/2 dozen
