M has been really stepping it up in the cooking department lately. It might be due to the grill he got for Christmas, but either way, I’m happy! I told him I owed him cookies for all the cookies he’s been doing lately and I was really happy to find we already had everything for these in the house.
These are very good, which is saying something as a person who doesn’t love chocolate. I never even had it until college, when my roommate made so much fun of me for not eating brownies. They are sweet and have a distinct chocolate flavor but it isn’t overboard. I think they’d be just amazing with a little vanilla bean ice cream in the middle.
3 cups all purpose flour, plus more for rolling
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
16 tbsp (2 sticks) softened butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
Whisk together the dry ingredients. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Scrap down sides and mix in vanilla. Gradually mix in dry ingredients. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for last an hour.
Preheat over to 350. Roll out dough on a floured counter. Cut into desired shapes. Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
