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