Chocolate cookies


Say Good bye to the packaged cookies & say hello to the fresh cookies from your own oven...I baked some chocolate cookies using the traditional cookie recipe..You can make this recipe in a matter of minutes..This is a super easy recipe that yields very satisfactory results. Here is my homemade cookie to munch on with afternoon tea.








Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 stick unsalted butter
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups powdered sugar
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup cocoa powder
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. 
Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside.
Melt butter in room temp. With a hand mixer beat together the butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla on medium-high speed until light & fluffy. 
Combine the dry ingredients until just combined. Gradually blend in to creamed mixture.


Fill a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop with dough; drop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet, leaving 3 inches between the cookies. 


Bake the cookies until they are done for  about 10-14  minutes (don’t over bake) . 




Cool on wire racks & then serve... You can keep them in a air tight container & njoy with hot hot tea..:)
