I'd like to cook chocolate sugar cookies. Should I just add cocoa powder to the original recipe?
No, you should find a chocolate cookie recipe that adds chocolate, in one or more forms, to a basic flour, butter, and sugar dough (may or may not include egg).
Thanks for clarification!
These ones are very good. They only use cocoa powder but they're the best recipe I've found. http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2008/0...
It looks very nice) Thanks, I'll try!
I am addicted to these
These are dark deep chocolate cookies from twopeasandtheirpod.com. I make them with the mint chips, but you could use chocolate chips or leave them out entirely.
You definitely need a glass of milk with these. They are delicious!
If you have a sugar cookie recipe that you love, you can replace some of the flour w/ cocoa. If the recipe asked for 2 1/4 c. sugar, I'd do a 1/4 cup replacement (add slightly more than 1/4 c cocoa, though).
I do this, too, but since that's not enough chocolate for my taste, I also add a bit of espresso powder, which seems to amp up the chocolateness.
I like the cream cheese sugar cookie recipe on Allrecipes.com. There is a variation for chocolate cookies. These make nice soft sugar cookies and are delicious.
what's your recipe? you could try swapping out some of the flour for cocoa powder… like ¼ of flour (ideally by weight).
