Chewy Chocolate Cookies

I know... I know... it has nothing to do with FIG and such. But I did use organic cocoa powder - does this count? heh...

Found this recipe when choc cookie craving hit me big time other night and I went ahead and scoff 3 cookies straight away - OOOHhhhhhh GORGEOUS!!!! Seriously! It has to be the most delicious, chocolaty and chewy cookies I've ever made!

From pantry
2 cups Sugar
2 whole Eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2 cups All-purpose Flour
¾ cups Cocoa
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
½ teaspoons Salt
Powdered Sugar (for Dusting) (optional)

From fridge
1-¼ cup Butter, Room Temperature (I estimated this to be a full butter block - 250g)

To create
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and blend well.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
Add flour mixture to creamed butter mixture and mix thoroughly.
Drop batter by teaspoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake cookies for 8-9 minutes, do NOT over bake!

An optional step - sprinkle each cookie with powdered sugar. (this I didn't do as I thought it was rich enough anyway.)

Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack. They will flatten out a lot after cooling.

Go on and try this recipe!!! I will be making another batch next week... hehe

I got this recipe from: Chewy Chocolate Cookies - Tasty Kitchen

Hide them from others and enjoy!
