Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate is the most favorite flavor at my home. My daughter will be always searching something to nibble. Something sweet, ya she is now seventeen but still my sweet baby girl..hehehe so I decided to bake some chocolate cookies. This recipe turned out so good that I wanted to share in my blog, happy baking and below is the recipe.

1cup unsalted butter
3cups all purpose flour
1/2tsp baking soda
2/3cup granulated sugar
1/2cup brown sugar
2tbs strong coffee
1tsp vanilla essence
1/2cup cocoa powder
pinch of salt

Sift flour, cocoa powder, salt & baking soda. Set aside. With your electric or hand mixer cream butter with granulated sugar and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, coffee and vanilla, now add flour/cocoa powder/baking soda mixture 1/2cup at a time. Mix until all the flour is finished mixing. Now take the dough on a slightly floured working area (like your kitchen counter or a big bowl) knead the dough not much little bit until the dough turns in to one ball. Divide the dough in to three portions, wrap each portion in plastic wrap or put in a zip bag. Chill in refrigerator for 1/2 hour, roll each portion about 1/2cm thick (It is better if you can roll out cookie dough without much flour so what I do is spread a plastic wrap piece on to the working area then I put the cookie dough on the center, take another piece of plastic wrap and spread on top of the cookie dough then roll the dough and I don't have to use any flour at all) cut out shapes with your cookie cutters, place the cutout shapes in a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake cookies in a 160C preheated oven for about 10minutes. Cool completely before decorating..........................enjoy!
