Chocolate Sugar Cookies
Source: Smitten Kitchen
These easy cookies are chewy on the inside and just a bit crunchy on the outside. They’re basically a flatter, crisper version of a brownie. You can also freeze these cookies and bake them in the future.
Makes about: 30 cookies
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 8-10 minutes
½ cup + 2 tbsp room temperature, unsalted butter
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa (I used natural cocoa)
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Cream together the butter and sugar.
3. Mix in egg.
4. Mix in cocoa.
5. Mix in baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until a dough forms.
6. Scoop dough using a tablespoon and form balls. Place balls of dough about 2’’ apart, because these cookies spread quite a bit.
7. Bake for about 8-10 minutes (shorter for softer cookies, longer for crunchier cookies). Alternately, freeze for future use, and adjust the baking time a bit to account for the frozen dough (only a few extra minutes needed).
8. Let cool and enjoy!
