Chocolate Snowflake Cookies

Chocolate Snowflake Cookies

What You'll Need:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick of butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
powdered sugar

Here's How:
1. Preheat oven to 350*. Lightly grease cookie sheets.
2. Combine flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl.

3. Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well blended.
4. Add flour mixture; beat just until blended.
(This is where I find chilling the dough will make the rolling process much easier. I divide the dough into 1/2's, wrap it in plastic wrap and chill it for an hour.)

5. Place powdered sugar in a shallow bowl. Shape heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into balls. Roll balls into sugar.

6. Place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.

7. Bake about 11 minutes or until set and no longer shiny. Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

(Good recipe Cute Bell!)
