Impress all of your chocolate loving friends with this recipe for Simple Chocolate Cookies. Though they may seem simple, these cookies have a rich chocolate flavor owing to the addition of both cocoa powder and melted dark chocolate to the cookie dough. Refrigerate the dough in cylinders, for at least two hours, and then you will be ready to slice and bake your way to a decadent chocolate cookie in no time. If you really love chocolate, you could even add chocolate chips into the dough.

Ingredients

  • 240 grams pastry flour
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • salt
  • 180 grams butter (at room temperature)
  • 210 grams vanilla sugar (made by storing vanilla bean husks in a container of sugar)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 50 grams dark chocolate (melted and cooled)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. Sift together the flour, cocoa, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together until white and fluffy. Add the egg yolks and chocolate, stirring constantly.
  4. Divide the dough into three parts. Roll each into a cylinder, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  5. Remove the rolls from the refrigerator and cut into slices approximately 7 millimeters thick.
  6. Bake the cookies for 14 to 15 minutes. Cool on cookie racks before serving.

I will add an extra teaspoon of cocoa to the batter the next time I make these. I could taste the chocolate flavor but I wanted it a little stronger. Instead, I could add chocolate chips as well for double chocolate cookies.
