love a little chocolate cookie...
love a little chocolate cookie…

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup dark cocoa powder
1 tea­spoon bak­ing soda
1/2 tea­spoon salt
2 1/2 sticks unsalted but­ter, room temperature
2 cups sugar, plus more for rolling
2 eggs
2 tea­spoons vanilla

Pre­heat the oven to 350. Line cookie sheet with parch­ment paper. Put 1/2 cup sugar in a small bowl and set aside.

Whisk the flour, cocoa pow­der, bak­ing soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.

I use a stand­ing mixer, cream the but­ter and 2 cups sugar together until light and fluffy, 3–6 min­utes. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat to com­bine. Add the flour mix­ture and mix on low until com­pletely combined.

Shape the cookie dough into 24 balls, and roll each ball in the set-aside sugar. Place cook­ies on the pre­pared cookie sheet and bake for 11–13 min­utes, until the edges have set and the cen­ters are puffed and start­ing to crackle. Remove from the oven let the cookies cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes then more cookies to wire cooling rack.

yummy….

It’s a great day at the Cottage.
