Description

Delicate and sweet, Chocolate Melt In Your Mouth Sugar Cookies use only a handful of ingredients to produce a tender cookie that literally melts in your mouth. Perfect for holiday parties and gift giving!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. In large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.
  2. In mixer bowl fitted with paddle blade, beat butter at medium-high speed until creamy.
  3. Slowly add powdered sugar and beat for 2 minutes at medium speed until fully incorporated into butter and smooth. Add vanilla and beat until fully combined.
  4. Add flour mixture and beat at low speed until flour mixture is just incorporated and no loose flour remains.
  5. Cover mixture and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until firm.
  6. If dough is too firm to scoop, soften on counter a few minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line large baking sheet with parchment or baking mat, or lightly grease.
  8. Using ice cream scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded balls of dough onto baking sheet. Dough should be roughly 1 inch diameter.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for 10 – 12 minutes, just until starting to crisp at the edges.
  10. Remove from the oven and cool on the pan for 10 minutes until cookies are set.
  11. Roll or sift with powdered sugar. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  12. Sift or with powdered sugar again if desired.


Notes

For best results, sift powdered sugar over cookies to coat. Cookies are delicate and may crumble if rolled.
