Chocolate Sugar Cookies


Today I'm sharing my favorite chocolate sugar cookie recipe that is ideal for decorating.  It contains no chemical leavening so it bakes up evenly for a perfectly smooth decorating surface. I use this recipe for decorating Christmas cookies, but they're also good sandwiched with a little buttercream.





A biscuit cookie (or biscuit biscuit?)!


Chocolate Sugar Cookies
Yield: Approximately two dozen                                                                          [click for printable version]

1/2 lb. (two US sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 scant cup dark cocoa powder
Pinch of salt

  1. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the butter and sugar together until just incorporated. Do not over-mix at this stage, or the cookies may spread while baking.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix again on low speed, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl intermittently as needed.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and salt.  Add to the butter and egg mixture.  Mix on low speed until a dough is formed and there are no longer any streaks of butter in the mixing bowl. The dough will often clump around the paddle attachment while being mixed. This is normal and a good sign that your dough is the right consistency.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a sheet of wax paper and top with a second sheet.  Roll dough into an oblong disc between the paper with a rolling pin.  Transfer dough - wax paper and all - to a large cookie sheet.  Wrap the dough tightly onto the cookie sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. Remove top sheet of wax paper and roll dough a little thinner.  It should not be sticky.  You may dust the surface lightly with flour if it is sticky, but not too much!  You don’t want streaks of white flour baked onto your pretty dark chocolate cookies.
  7. Roll dough to a ¼-inch to ½ -inch thickness.
  8. Cut out desired shapes from the dough and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Be careful not to stretch the cutout shapes or they will be distorted after baking.
  9. Refrigerate the cutouts for 30 minutes. This will help the cookies maintain a crisp shape during baking.
  10. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  11. Bake the cookies for 15 to 20 minutes.
  12. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. Decorate the cookies when completely cooled.

For Christmas I would love to get the Trunks Full of Taste Shaker Set for my sister because it's adorable, and the People Pleaser mug for me!

Amy said...

Oh wow, thank you for introducing Mod Cloth's site to me. I had so much fun browsing and searching for goodies there. Besides the Cutensils Cutlery Set that you shown (Love those), I love the "No Taste Like Homemade Apron". I know my Mom (my best friend in the kitchen) would look fabulous in it. Besides, I know she can use a new set of "Meow" measuring cups. :)

Wearing the Haute in Hibiscus apron would inspire me to make such beautiful meals for my family! I would be fooled into thinking I was wearing a super cute dress and maybe even wear it out in public on occasion. It is THAT cute. Omg!! :)

My e-mail is acmarsden@gmail.com

klgregory said...

All of their things are so cute! I love it! I really love the tea for two teapot set with the black cat on it. I would get that to share with my roommate because I have a black cat! The aprons are so adorable as well!

That is one cute pug cookie. Those are some adorable gifts, love all of them.

Sonya said...

My sister collects tea cups and pots. I would love to give her one of the cutie ones from the site!

Carol said...

I had such a hard time choosing!! I would have to say the Roy G. B-aker Food Prep Set, or the Haut Hibiscus apron are both on the top of my Xmas wish list! Awesome site, thanks for showing it to us!

I love the Owls of a Measure measuring cups! So cute!

Sarah (Snippets of Thyme) said...

Look at all of our responses! Fabulous! The cookies are adorable. I'm a sucker for these kiddy frosted cookies. I would have to say that the owl apron you are wearing is adorable! Yes, the owl apron because we love owls over here.

Oh Sugar! said...

My daughter recently moved out of our home and is FINALLY really getting into baking! YAY!! Her place is very small, and she is lacking in essentials for her baking quest! This would be AWESOME to be able to give to her! THANK YOU for the opportunity!

Jess said...

I've had my eye on the Pole Dweller ice cream scoop in Walrus and the cupcake measuring cups for a long time now!

I cannot win here in canada, but that chocolate cookie recipe will be a great thing to try:)

nancytyna said...

We currently need a set of mixing bowls (don't ask how we're surviving without any). But then my eyes wander to the flower printed oven mitt and all the cute printed mugs... so hard to decide!

Auntie Christina said...

Wow! What a great site! Thanks for sharing it!

I would probably choose one of the several salt/pepper shaker sets for my sister. My favorite is the truffle shuffle one..though the elephant one is pretty cute too.

As for me....there are just too many things to pick from! The $100 gift card would go fast and I'd likely have to pay a bit more!!

:-)

Lisette F. said...

I would buy the Sip at your own risk tumbler since I broke my roommate's. I didn't realize that's where she got it, I'll probably buy it either way.

I also need those kitty measuring cups. need. :D

Andrea said...

Those are some perfect looking cookies! Wow! I wish I was that good...

From ModCloth, I'd really love the Human Bean Mug to give to one of my coffee-lovin' friends, and.....can I pick two? And the cooking owl apron for another friend who LOVES owls.

artility said...

It is way too hard to choose from all the cute things. The ones that struck out at me were the creature comfort teapot and the pecking order salt and pepper shakers. Cute pug cookies!!!

Madeline @ThursdayNightBaking said...

I adore the Pretty Cupcake Kit. It is sold out, but I think I could find something else I like :)

Chia said...

Undoubtedly I'd have to get the Whisker cookie cutter set. And while my iphone is acurate, the Twisting Sister Timer would be cooler and cuter to use.

Sarah @ pão e queijo said...

I'm really the baker of the family, so I'm going to list what I would love from ModCloth (how did I not know they sell Kitchen goods?!):

Matryoshka seasoning shaker set

And so much more ;) Happy holidays!

We have such a tiny kitchen in our apartment, but my husband still manages to make us beautiful, delicious food (thanks Honey), so to help a little with the stacking of clean dishes that we currently do, I would love the gorgeous "Washing & Hoping & Dreaming Dish Rack".

H2OMG Bottle in Indoor

My water bottle broke while I was travelling abroad. And if I could get a replacement as fabulous as this, that would be wonderful! And maybe a cute apron too, for when my mom and I bake together.

These cookies look divine by the way! :)

Nic said...

My college roomie has a thing for pandas, so that cute panda mug with the spoon that hangs from the rim would be PERFECT!

Roommate#1 said...

My sister is now able to live in an assisted living apartment complex. She is so excited to be independent, and she asked for kitchen items for Christmas!

I think the Roy G. B-aker Food Prep Set would be so cute and practical for her kitchen!

Awesome giveaway. I love the Primrose Teapot.

Jacinda Harper said...

Your tip about not over mixing the butter and sugar probably saved my sanity. For the life of me I could not figure out why my cookies would spread on some batches and not others. Thanks so much.
My only tip is when I do chocolate cookies, I mix a little cocoa with the flour so I have no white streaks. This may be a baking no no but they taste great and no streaks.
My kitchen is set but if I were randomly selected, I would buy something for my daughters best friend. She is a doll who loves to bake and could use all the love and support she can get.

me said...

I fell in love with the owl box. :))) I want one for everyone I know, for who doesn't love a cutie like that, bringing immediate smiles to all?!? Ok, I also love the Hoot apron... and everything else, darn it. And, I love your blog. I've indulged in my chocolate sprinkle cookies (sans filling- delicious though!), but my matcha spirals and spearmint spirals were very flat and fell apart just by looking at them; I will keep trying, though! Until next time! :)

i would want the tea for two

Browsing through and seeing all the items is tough to pick just one I'd want, but the Roy G,B-aker Food Prep Set looks awesome and I would love it!

Ashley Nicole said...

Wow, first off the "Ice Age Tray" would be a hit with my nephew, the "Wonder With a Whisker Cookie Cutter Set" would be appreciated by any of my guy friends and for myself...I'm a sucker for houndstooth so I'd love the "To the Houndstooth Apron" and the "Living a Foodie-tale Plate Set" (I've always wanted blue and white dishes!!!).

Ooh, the moustache cookie cutters! Or the Haute Hibiscus apron!

Serious Horn Cat said...

This is so exciting! Someone who loves ModCloth! Yay!

There are so many baking things that would be wonderful to have there. If I had to choose one thing, it would be the wonderful and colorful Roy G Baker prep set. It is practical and beauitful at the same time.

My cousin is just starting to cook, and she' very into owls. I think she would like the apron you're wearing, and the owl mug is pretty awesome, and the owl measuring cups are very cute. Decisions, decisions... hopefully!

arfreeman10 said...

Nothing warms me up better than a huge mug of hot cocoa on a overcast winter's day! I know the "Know it owl" is the perfect mug! Plus the super cute "owl in the same spot Keepsake Cookie jar", is just begging to be filled with light and crisp Snickerdoodles. I'm a sucker for those big owl eyes! <3 <3 <3

Irish said...

I love, love, love the "ice age tray." Who doesn't love dinosaurs AND ice?

I'd definitely give my bff the Tea Rex infuser and my brother (a scientist with a new house) the Roy G Baker food prep set. We're a family of geeks and foodies, so it's PERFECT.

I'm in love with the "Paw Me a Cup Tea Set in Green and Black." Either combination is adorable, but if I had to pick...

I know this sounds maudlin, but if my Mom were still here (lost her last year, !@#$^&* to colon cancer), I would totally have given her the Human Bean mug. With her extensive chemo, coffee wasn't an option for her anymore, along with so many other things. But she really missed her coffee.

This is seriously amazing! I would give (and like) the Haute Hibiscus Apron! :)

I love Mod Cloth, sadly, they don't carry my size in clothes, but they have soooo much I want! First thing- CATULA! Seriously, I would have to get one for me and one for my sister!

I love the mix and munch cutlery set in the multi color! I'm planning on moving into my first place and January and they'd be perfect for my new kitchen!

My sister-in-law loves anything pink and/or cupcake...pink cupcakes being the best. I would totally buy those pink cupcake measuring spoons for her kitchen.

Megan said...

I love ModCloth!! I'd probably get a couple mugs with the money- the Surprise Mug in Fox one is so cute :)

Oooh, I want the mixing bowls! (I currently have 2 flimsy ones that aren't too great to work with). Or, the To the Houndstooth Apron. Every time I bake I seem to be wearing black ... and I don't have an apron!
All their aprons are absolutely gorgeous though.

justmanette said...

I would love the Modcloth giftcard! They're my dream store should I win the lottery;)

amalia said...

Those cookies look soooo good....I LOVE the dark chocolate. I do have a question.....do you let the cookies come to room temp after being in the fridge before baking or do you just simply put them from refrigerator to oven? Thanks for any advice you might have!

jeannie said...

can you tell me what frosting recipe you used for those cute christmas tree cookies?

Rebecca said...

I am almost done with my Christmas shopping, so I think, (and I hesitate to admit it) I would buy myself some gorgeous clothes with that gift card!!! Great giveaway!

Chriss Johns said...

Hi! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. I made these cookies...the dough was a dream to work with. They tasted great coming out of the oven. I had a hard time deciding if they were done since I could not tell if they were getting brown or not. I think they may have been over baked since they are pretty hard now. Are they supposed to be a crunchy cookie or do you think I over baked them. They still taste great!
Thanks again.

molly said...

I tested out your recipe and these cookies are delicious! Thanks for the idea...and the Sugar Rush!

Hi! I'm about to make these cookies for a friend and have 2 questions: is dark cocoa powder different from what I would normally get at the grocery store? Like Hershey's? And, are they as delicious as they look? I'm making ghosts!

Shannon said...

As a fan of ModCloth it was not hard to find what I'd like to get for christmas....

Or the Moustache cookie cutter set would be so fun! My boyfriend and I would have a blast trying on cookie moustaches.

Hi! Is the icing recipe for the chocolate cookies posted? They look great!

Libbie said...

Oh my goodness! These look perfect! This is my first visit to your blog & it has such a happy uplifting tone...love it! I have to go peek around now :) Thanks!

Andrea Z said...

These cookies were delicious! I didn't have an egg at home, so I made them with 1/4 cup banana, and they were extra yummy! (They tasted like a chocolate chip banana bread!)

Lindsayc_2001 said...

Do these cookies freeze well? I will be baking a lot of treats for an upcoming luncheon at work and need to start early.

Cuppers said...

Love your cute owl apron. I would have its in my kitchen.

lalamcphee said...

Made these tonight for a cookie decorating party tomorrow. The dough was very crumbly; if squeezed it would stick together, but rolling it was useless. I added another egg and then it worked well. My husband really likes them (with icing), but my 3 year old didn't care for them much. I thought they were a little dry, but maybe it's because they weren't cooked long enough??? Are they suppose to be crunchy like an Oreo? Or softer?

Thanks for sharing this recipe, though. It will be fun to decorate and I'm sure they will be a hit!

So, on all these comments not one person has made these cookies (which is what the post is actually about, not what crap you can buy at ModCloth). No opinions on how these turned out?!

traci nicole said...

Sorry if this has already been asked! but I was wondering if instead of dark chocolate cocoa powder, can I use regular cocoa powder? I have some for another recipe, would it still make it chocolate-ty? :] thanks!

Hi again. There never was a reply to my question regarding the icing recipe. Is the recipe posted? I'd like to make them again. Thanks. -Kathleen D
