Chocolate Sugar Cookies


Chocolate Sugar Cookies I I #cutout #dessert #baking


Excuse me for a minute. I’m in a chocolate coma.

Between that hot chocolate last week, and these chocolate sugar cookies I finished baking today, not to mention the box of chocolates that I may have been working on since Friday, I am all chocolated out. That is totally a word. My spell check may not think so, but I’m rolling with it.

Lots of things going on over here this week! I got some new bloggy toys.

And new photos shall be taken forevermore with this lovely thing.

Had some fun and brought the cookies featured in this post out to my sister-in-law’s birthday party, where I got to eat THIS awesomeness.

I’ve also been doing some stocking up since we rejoined Costco. Luckily, little tiny one is still at a great shopping age.

I am in love with these cookies. They are slightly crunchy, full of chocolate flavor, and the white chocolate drizzle is the perfect topping.

First mix together the dry ingredients and set aside.

Now mix together the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and cocoa until they are well combined.

I like to crack my eggs into a dish before I add them into the mixer. It will save you from getting tiny pieces of shell in the whole batch!

Now slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the mixture. Mix until the flour is combined. Scrape out of mixer, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for >4 hours < 1 week.

After the dough is chilled, lightly sprinkle a counter with cocoa powder, and roll the cookies out. These are very flexible in that you can roll them very thin, down to 1/4 inch or so, or you can keep them thicker. Thinner cookies will be a bit crunchy after baking, and thicker cookies will have a softer texture.

Now cut out into whatever shapes you prefer. I liked hearts and flowers.
