How to make Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I am such a bad blogger…I’ve neglected you all. Please don’t cry it’ll all be okay! I’ve had zero drive to cook here recently – probably because my arm is killing me still from my surgery. However, I do have a new recipe for you this week. It is on Chocolate Roll out Sugar cookies. Okay so they are chocolate sugar cookies. I have only made the dough so far – it’s sitting in the freezer awaiting me to roll it out and bake I’ve been a little busy so it’s been hard to bake them so far. However, the dough tasted super yummy…not that I ate raw dough….don’t judge! They have been baked - super tasty!

So here is what you’ll need:

1 c. butter

1 c. plus 2 tbsp of white sugar

1 egg

1 tsp of Vanilla
2 c. plus 1 tbsp of flour

Slightly less than 1 full cup of cocoa powder (it say’s scant which means not quite one cup)

A pinch of salt

Okay so I doubled my recipe I am making it for something so I needed a lot…but here is what you do.

Take a large mixing bowl (btw if anyone wants to get me a kitchen aid mixer a stand one I’d love you forever I like my kitchen aid hand mixer but it’s not the same…) add your sugar and butter together and mix until just together – not creaming. Add egg and Vanilla Extract – I am almost out of my homemade this makes me sad. Mix those two things on a low speed until combined.

In a different bowl add together the flour, salt, and cocoa and whisk it together. This part is fun and the reason I wish I had a standing mixer- add the flour and crap to it and continue to mix until your dough is sticking to your beaters…yeah tons of fun anyway it’s a super thick batter, so after that place it into a plastic bag and toss it in the fridge to chill. Then pull it out and like a sugar cookie, roll it to a ¼ - ½ inch thick and then cut out some shapes bake at 350 for 15 – 20 minutes and cool then decorate. Yes that is it! Enjoy!!
