For the Secret Recipe Club this month I was assigned DailyDishRecipes.com. Its run by a lady named Nicole from St.Louis. She considers herself the Queen of Comfort Food and she likes easy recipes made from scratch! She has 5 kids and tries to make her picky eaters not so picky anymore. :)
She has several recipes I want to make but I'm always intrigued by something chocolate! I decided to make her Chocolate Sugar Cookies. They are sweet, soft, and something I'll be making again soon! I adapted them a little so I could shape them, but they are still essentially the same. Go over to Daily Dish Recipes and find something delicious to make!
Simple Chocolate Sugar Cookies
Recipe Adapted from: DailyDishRecipes.com
1 cup Butter, room temp
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
2 cups Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt

1 cup White Chocolate Chips (Optional)
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
2. In a separate bowl whisk together the cocoa, flour, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for an hour.
3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line your cookie sheets with silpat mats or parchment paper. Lightly flour your surface and roll out dough. Cut out shapes with desired cookie cutter and bake for 8-10 mintues.
