Old Fashioned Cookies
First I'm starting with Old Fashinoned Chocolate drop cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter (soft)
2 cups sugar
1 TBS Vanilla extract
Crystal Sugar for rolling
In a medium bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together. As Lukas Demonstrates in the photo below.
While the Dough is chilling preheat the oven to 350. Once the dough is chilled slice each log up. I went for big cookies and cut my logs into 9 pieces each. It would be easy to make at least double that and have good sized cookies. After slicing the logs roll each cookie into a ball and roll in crystal sugar. Place 1 1/2 inches apart.Bake on parchment lined cookie sheets for 10-13 min turning the pan half way through baking. Cookies can be stored for up to one week covered, if they last that long. If you don't want to bake them all at once the cookie dough can be frozen for 6 months. I made 1 1/2 dozen cookies, but they were huge!
So next time I would make 3 dozen for regular size cookies.
