Chocolate Sugar Cookies

It's a raining day here in KS and it has finally cooled down a bit.  It's been over 100° everyday for the past week or so.  Each day worst than the next, makes it really hard to breathe.  I won't complain to much because I really hate winter and it will be here before we know it!  sigh!
I made these for work, found the recipe on Pinterest and I changed it up a bit.  To one of the batches i added peanut butter just to see what they would taste like.   They were a hit.  Next time I think I'll add caramel bits and maybe a batch with chopped walnuts.  So guess you can do a lot with this recipe.  Give it a try.

makes about 44 cookies
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar for rolling
  1. Cream together butter and brown sugar with a mixer until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add in eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition, and then vanilla.
  3. Combine cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture. Mix well.
  4. Refrigerate dough for one hour.
  5. Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough and place into granulated sugar, roll around to coat. Place sugar coated dough on lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheet, space cookies 2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 9-10 minutes.
  6. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing to racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. 
Thanks for stopping by,  have a wonderful week and Always Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the things You L♥ve.
