Chocolate sugar cookies

Chocolate sugar cookies aren’t on the decadent, gooey, indulgent end of the chocolate spectrum. They’re simple, satisfying, and slightly old-fashioned.

Chocolate sugar cookies are firm with just a bit of give – the addition of baking powder giving them a subtle cakiness. Adam describes them as “chocolate pudding in a biscuit.”

Because they keep their shape so well, chocolate sugar cookies make excellent filled biscuits – or little ice cream sandwiches.

Chocolate sugar cookies
(makes about 3 dozen smallish cookies)

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1¼ cups caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2½ cups plain flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  1. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar.
  2. Add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
  4. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the dough until combined.
  5. Form the dough into a flat disc and chill for an hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  7. On a floured surface, roll the chilled dough to a ½cm thickness. Cut out the cookies with a cookie cutter, and arrange on baking sheets lined with baking parchment.
  8. Bake for about ten minutes, or until firm and a bit puffy. Cool on a wire rack.
