The delight behind the previous post – and please feel free to copy this one! Recipes are never copyrighted as far as I am concerned!
1-cup all-purpose flour
1/2-cup cocoa powder
1/2-teaspoon baking soda
1/2-cup packed brown sugar
1/2-cup white sugar (I use all brown sugar cause I like the brown sugar flavour)
1-cup salted butter(at room temperature)
1 large egg
1-teaspoon pure vanilla extract
icing sugar – optional
How to make:
Sift and set aside all the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking soda)
Using a mixer on medium speed beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until creamed.
Add egg, and then beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes)
Mix in vanilla until just combined
Now gradually spoon in the dry ingredients with the mixer on low speed.
Cover bowl and place in refrigerator to chill until dough is firm (at least 1 hour)
Let the oven preheat to 350 degrees, and line some baking sheets with parchment paper.
Using clean dry hands roll the dough into small balls (about 1″ in size)
Space about 1 1/2 inches apart on the baking sheets.
Bake for 8 minutes or until cookies seem firm.
Using a small sieve lightly dust the tops of the cookies with icing sugar.
Allow to cool on baking sheet for few minutes before removing from sheets.
Remember to replace the parchment sheet if you need to re-use the baking sheet for another batch – otherwise the icing sugar may give the next patch a slight burnt flavour!
