Chocolate Cookies

Discovered this recipe around a year ago while searching for cookie recipes and so glad that I found this recipe. Another great thing is that you can store the cookie dough in the fridge or freezer for a couple of days and it only takes 10 minutes to cook in the oven.

Recipe adapted from the food network, here is the link:  Top Secret Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate Cookies:

Ingredients

  • 2 And 1/2 Sticks or (283 Grams) of Unsalted Butter (at room temperature)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 Cup Dutch Process Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of Salt
  • OPTIONAL: White Sanding Sugar to garnish

Method:

  1. Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl
  2. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the creamed mixture and mix until combined
  3. In another bowl mix the Cocoa Powder, Baking Soda and  Salt.
  4. Gradually, add the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture until incorporated.
  5. Roll the dough into 2 logs and wrap in wax paper. (Note: It will be a paste like consistency)
  6. Place this dough in to the fridge for two hours (Note: I put it in the freezer instead, the dough becomes more solid quickly)
  7. Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius)
  8. When the cookie dough is thoroughly chilled slice the cookies into 1/2 thick rounds
  9. Place the cookies on parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes
  10. The cookies will be soft and break so wait before the cookie cools before putting them on the rack
  11. Remove to a wire rack  to cool

Enjoy 🙂
