Chocolate Cookies

I’ve been chasing this recipe since naptime in kindergarden and I finally found it. I added a splash of strong coffee for an additional depth of flavor. Hopefully these cookies make you as happy as they do me. You better have your pink blankie nearby.

2 1/2 sticks Butter- room temp

2 cups Sugar plus extra to sprinkle tops before baking

2  Eggs

1 teaspoon Vanilla

1 tablespoon Coffee (optional)

3/4 cup  Cocoa Powder

2 cups plus one tablespoon Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt

Cream together butter and sugar.

Add the eggs, vanilla, and coffee. Beat well.

Add cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt.

Mix until incorporated.

Split dough in half and on a surface sprinkled with cocoa powder roll each half into a log.

Cool in frig (at least an hour)

Preheat oven 180c/350f

Slice about 1/2 “ thick and line them up on your baking sheet.

Sprinkle tops with sugar and bake for 10 minutes.

I've had the great good fortune of living abroad for more than a decade. The traditions, comfort and memories of home are things I cherish and carry with me on my travels. What I wasn't expecting was that other cultures and flavors would seep into my own traditions and favorites and influence a new batch of classics. Heres to evolving traditions and new memories!
