These fabulous, melt in your mouth, cookie mounds are absolutely divine.
Again, one of those great recipes that children & grandchildren can help prepare.
Kids love placing them on the tray and rolling them in powdered sugar when they
are done. They love filling the gift jars and putting on the gift tags.
Most of all, they love licking their fingers and nibbling on the extras!
1 ½ c. flour
¾ c. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking powder
¾ tsp. kosher salt
½ c. butter, softened
¾ c. brown sugar
¼ c. sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 ¼ c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 c. powdered sugar, for coating
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a medium-size bowl. In
a separate bowl cream together butter and sugars with an electric mixer.
Add eggs and vanilla and blend well. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture
and mix until a soft dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips. Cover dough and
place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare jelly roll pans with cooking spray or line with
parchment paper. Place powdered sugar in a small bowl. Using a cookie scoop,
make tablespoon-size balls with chilled dough; roll in powdered sugar. Place
balls 2 inches apart on prepared pans. Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes.
Cookies will puff up and crack.
