Easy Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I've made plenty of sugar cookies, but I've never made chocolate ones. These were a real winner with my grandchildren who said they tasted like brownies, and they would have eaten all of them if I had let them.

I think these are best when they are still warm from the oven, and paired with a cold glass of milk.

The recipe is easy, and the next time I make these, I'll double the recipe. I'm putting them on the list to make when I need a cookie that is fudgy, delicious, and quick to make.

Recipe for Chocolate Sugar Cookies


1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder


 Preheat oven to 350. Put the sugar in a  shallow dish and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt until well mixed. Add the egg and egg yolk, and mix until combined. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder, and mix until just combined.
 Roll the dough into 20-24 balls (about 2 tablespoons each). Roll each ball in the sugar, then place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass. Bake 10-12 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack.
