Tomorrow is Valentine's Day but don't worry - there's still time to bake a batch of cookies for your special Valentine and I've got the perfect recipe for you. I love this chocolate sugar cookie recipe that I found on sweetapolita.com. The soft, dark chocolate cookie with the sweet vanilla frosting is absolutely divine. You are sure to impress your Valentine with this sweet treat.
Perfect Dark Chocolate Sugar Cookies
6 cups (750 g) all-purpose flour, sifted
1-1/4 cups (137 g) dark cocoa powder
1 teaspoon (8 g) salt
2 cups (454 g)(4 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups (400 g) granulated sugar
1 cup (228 g) light brown sugar
3 eggs, cold
2 teaspoons (10 ml) pure vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 325° F. Cut your shapes using the cutters of your choice, placing them on a baker's half sheet lined with a silicone baking mat (or parchment), with 2" clearance around each one and the edge of sheet. Place sheet with cookies into freezer for 15 minutes before baking.
Bake until cookie edges are just crisp, about 16 minutes.
Cool sheets on wire racks for 10 minutes, then gently remove cookies and place on wire racks to finish cooling.
If your Valentine is a chocolate lover, he (or she) will LOVE these chocolate sugar cookies. Customize your cookies by using your favorite cookie cutter shapes. Add just a little frosting for decoration or spread it on thick for a sweeter cookie - The choice is yours.
