Top Secret Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 3/4 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • White Sanding sugar, for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, add the butter and sugar and cream together with a hand mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the creamed mixture and mix until combined. In a medium bowl, mix the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients and continue mixing until incorporated.

    Roll the dough into 2 logs that are about 2-inches high and 1-foot long. Wrap them in waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Once thoroughly chilled, slice the cookies into 1/2-inch thick rounds and cover with sanding sugar. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

    Remove to a wire rack to cool.
