After a busy Christmas week, I decided to maintain my productivity on my “free day” and make some cookies. Our kitchen sink has been “out of order” recently so making anything too messy is currently out of the question. I decided cookies would probably be best since it’s minimal clean-up and dry ingredients.
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter, room temp.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, fixed with the paddle attachment, thoroughly mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
- Set mixer to a lower speed and add the butter little by little. Then add the egg.
- Continue mixing until the dough comes together in a mass.
- Take rounded teaspoons of the batter and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet (this recipe will actually need about 2 1/2 baking sheets, depending on the size).
- With moistened hands, slightly flatten the batter. Bake for 9-10 minutes, rotating once for even baking (I would suggest around the 5 minute mark). Set baking sheets on cooling racks.
A few of these came out a little too chewy for my liking but everyone else seems to enjoy them so I guess I won’t complain.
Have a happy (and safe!) New Year!
