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.

  6. 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. :)

  26. 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!!

  114. 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.

  147. I am in LOVE with aprons! I would love to have one or two for me(like the culinary artist apron), and I would give my friend one two (she collects aprons too). The mustache cookie cutter set would make a great gift for my friend, who's nickname is mustache!

  148. LOVE the pug cookies and love the giveaway, too. I hope I win because I'd be very happy to get my hands on that Apple a Day cutting board. That's the name of my blog, so it's just perfect!

  149. 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!

  150. 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!!!).

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

  152. 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.

  155. 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!

  156. 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

  158. 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.

  159. I would love to give the A Cut Above the Nest Cutting Board to my sister! ...and receive the Trunks Full of Taste Shaker Set for myself :)

    ReplyDelete
  160. I'd definitely get the antique looking measuring spoons. I love how each of them have a slightly different design and they would look so cute as part of a styled food shot. Hah, man... I think I may get these even if I don't win the giveaway :)

  161. I love the Culinary Artist Apron! In my dorm everyone on my floor congregates in the kitchen and I'd love to wear this next time we all cook together. :)

    ReplyDelete
  162. 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'll be going away to college soon (!) and it would be such a cute and convenient way to bond - over tea from a cat teapot.

  165. 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.

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

  177. 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.

  180. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  182. 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!

  183. 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.

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

  185. Wonderful recipe. thank you
    For me, well I love wearing aprons so would probably get me a couple along with maybe a set of salt and pepper shakers to go with my collection
    Thank you

  186. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  187. 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.

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

  189. 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!

  190. 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!)

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  193. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  194. 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?!

    ReplyDelete
  195. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  196. 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
