Chocolate Sugar Cookies
These Chocolate Sugar Cookies are delightfully sweet and chocolatey! Plus they are perfectly soft in the middle – they almost melt in your mouth!
Serves: 22
  • ½ cup butter (softened)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups of plain flour
  • ½ cup of cocoa
  • ¾ teaspoon of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  1. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, stir to combine and set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar in mixer until it is light and fluffy.
  3. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to butter and sugar mixture (change attachments to dough hooks if necessary).
  5. Mix until all the dry ingredients are incorporated then shape the dough into a ball, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  7. Remove dough from fridge and work it between your hands for a couple of minutes to soften it slightly.
  8. Place the dough between two pieces of baking paper and roll it out to your desired thickness (mine were just under 1 cm thick – bit more than ¼ inch).
  9. Cut into shapes and then bake on a baking paper lined tray for 8 to 10 minutes (when done the cookies will look firm around the outside and a little puffy in the middle).
  10. Remove from oven and cool on tray.
