I just couldn’t resist the urge to bake something gooey and delicious today! I started the 3 Day Potty Training Boot Camp for my 2 year old today so we needed something to help pass the time. For those who aren’t familiar with this method, you cannot leave the house for 3 straight, full days. You have to keep an eye on your child at all times. This is fine, now that these cold ass Chicago days are upon us. Plus, little boys Fruit of the Loom briefs are super cute!
Ok, enough mom talk. These cookies are simple to make and don’t have crazy ingredients, so if you need a pick me up, bake up these brown circles of chocolatey, sugary goodness!
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup granulated sugar for rolling
These cookies are so pretty! My husband even asked, “Why are they so shiny?” LOL
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together butter, brown sugar, vanilla and salt. Add egg and egg yolk and whisk until combined.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder. Add to wet ingredients and stir until moistened. Dough will be thick.
Roll dough into 2 inch balls and roll in sugar. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Press each cookie down slightly with the bottom of a glass.
Bake for 10 minutes and let cool on cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
