Recipe: Chocolate Cookies by Martha Stewart

Delicious, crisp chocolate cookie ! My absolute favorite ! Hands down...
Chocolate Cookies from Martha Stewart
(printable recipe)
Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Dutch cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups (2 sticks plus 4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar, plus more for dipping
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


Directions:
1. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.


2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter, 2 cups sugar, and eggs on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla, and mix to combine. Gradually add dry ingredients, and combine with mixer on low speed. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and chill until dough is firm, about 1 hour. [Can refrigerate overnight too.]


3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with Silpat baking mats. [ I spray the sheets lightly with Pam] Roll dough into 1-inch balls. [I use small one inch ice cream scoop.] Dip top of each ball into sugar. [Or roll the ball in sugar. Can use red sugar for Christmas, orange for Halloween etc.] Place on prepared baking sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until set, about 8 -10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies freeze well and are tasty frozen!
Number Of Servings: 50 large cookies

Great blog!

Yum! I have her cookie book, but I haven't made anything out of it for some reason. I love cookies, though and when I saw these at your link up to Under The Table and Dreaming, I just had to come over and invite you to link up to my Foodie Friday party.
