Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Chocolate Sugar Cookies
     Today was one of those days that just didn't feel like summer. It felt more like a fall day. It was very cool out. In fact I wore jeans and a sweatshirt most of the day. When its cool like this it's time for me to turn the oven on and do some baking, since heating up the house is a good thing when the temp is in the 60's.

     I was in search for something different that I hadn't tried before. I was in search of something chocolate. I found the perfect choice with these chocolate sugar cookies. They taste like a brownie. i could see adding these to a bowl of vanilla ice cream and drizzling some chocolate syrup on top.

     Now of course these cookies are superb all by themselves. One has to have some self control with these babies because they are so moist and chocolatey that you just want to keep on eating. They go perfect with a tall glass of milk and satisfy that craving for chocolate.

     So go ahead and make some. You'll be happy you did! 

Chocolate Sugar Cookies
1 C butter, softened
1 1/2 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
3/4 C cocoa powder
2 C all purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1/2 C sugar for rolling

Cream butter and brown sugar together and mix until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla mixing well. In a separate bowl combine cocoa powder, flour, soda and salt. Slowly add this mixture to the wet mixture. Mix well.
Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop out dough and roll into a ball. Then roll in sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet. Place cookies 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
Let cookies cool 8-10 minutes on cookie sheet and remove and place on cooling racks to cool completely.
