Foodporn Friday: Rude cookies
When my sister visited recently she brought me some cookie stamps with letters – I did some “thank you” cookies for a friend and then thought I’d do something a little more fun… rude cookies.
So far I’ve done “hands off fatty” and “bite me”. I’m quite looking forward to taking some rude cookies to work.
I used Sweetapolita’s recipe for dark chocolate sugar cookies and they were good but I thought they needed some extra sweetness. Next time I will use the recipe below – its much harder to work with than the Sweetapolita recipe but its richer and delicious without any icing.
Bittersweet Chocolate Cookies
1 cup(s) granulated sugar
115 gr butter, softened
1/2 cup(s) canola oil
1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
1 large egg
280gr all-purpose flour (about 2 1/4 cups)
3/4 cup(s) unsweetened dark cocoa
1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
To prepare cookies, place the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and egg; beat until well blended.
Weigh or lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flours, cocoa, and salt, stirring with a whisk. Add the flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat at low speed just until flour is incorporated.
Place half of dough between two sheets of plastic wrap; roll to a 1/4-inch thickness. Repeat procedure with remaining dough. Place dough (still wrapped in plastic wrap) on a baking sheet. Chill 45 minutes or until firm.
Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
Cut dough with a 2 1/2- to 3-inch cutter to form 40 cookies (reroll scraps as necessary). Arrange 20 cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (keep remaining cookies chilled). Bake at 190 degrees C for 9 minutes or until set. Cool on pan on a wire rack 5 minutes; remove cookies from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.
