When I’m craving a cookie that is purely chocolate, these are always what comes to mind. They are delicious without being overly chocolatey, and seeing your cookies come out perfectly “crackled” is so satisfying!
You will need:
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup melted milk chocolate chocolate chips
- 1/6 cup milk
- dash of salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup flour
- granulated sugar
- powdered sugar
Cream together shortening and brown sugar until well combined. Then beat in the egg and vanilla.
Melt chocolate chips for 30 seconds. Stir. If not fully melted and smooth, microwave for another 15 seconds and stir again. Wait for chocolate chips to cool slightly (but not harden), then fold them into your cookie dough.
Beat in your milk.
Add salt, baking powder, and flour. Dough should be thick and and clumped together, though still slightly sticky. If it still resembles brownie batter, slowly add flour until you get the correct consistency.
Chill dough in freezer for 10 mins.
Roll cookie dough into one inch balls, then roll those balls first in granulated sugar, then in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet. 15 will fit on a pan.
Bake for 10 mins at 350 degrees. Makes 30 cookies.
