Dutch Cocoa Cookies

The only problem with recipe testing is getting sick from eating too many cookies. You always get told when you are younger don’t eat too many snacks or you’ll get sick! Nope, I could eat two boxes of twinkies and 80 pixie sticks and then run around like maniac for eight hours and be fine. Now I eat a measly seven cookies and suddenly don’t feel well. Getting old is for the birds. Either way after trying multiple recipes this one is legit. Quick cookie recipe for today, here are some Dutch cocoa cookies.

Dutch Cocoa Cookies

  • 180 g AP Flour
  • 200 g Sugar
  • 120 g Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 90 g Butter (Melted)
  • 65 g Cocoa Powder
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Sift flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt together, set aside. Combine melted butter and cocoa powder in mixing bowl with paddle until paste forms. Add eggs one at a time, add extract and scrape down the bowl. Slowly add in dry and mix until just combined. The dough will be a little more wet than a traditional cookie dough but don’t worry, letting it sit in the fridge will help firm it up a bit. Cover dough and refrigerate overnight. Scoop into balls and slightly flatten on parchment paper, make sure you leave enough space for the cookies to spread while baking.

Sprinkle top with sugar and bake in oven at 325° for 10-12 minutes. Let sit on tray for 2 minutes before moving to cooling rack.

Later this week I’ll be making a hearty braised meat stew. I know I know, you must be thinking, “But James, it’s April, shouldn’t you be making a lighter dish?” Which I would normally agree with, however it snowed today during my walk to the bank so all rules are off as far as I’m concerned. Thank you once again for checking out the blog. Goodnight and good luck.
