Dark Chocolate Cocoa Cookies

Soft + Chewy = Delicious! 
A perfect cookie choice to make with the kiddos. You absolutely can't go wrong with these chocolate cookies. The kids love rolling the cookie dough in sugar and tasting some along the way!

For an added punch try adding some instant coffee grounds for a more grown-up taste.

Dark Chocolate Cocoa Cookies
1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 c. unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/2 t. baking soda
pinch of salt
6 T. butter, softened
1 c. sugar, plus extra for rolling
1 egg
2 t. vanilla
1/2 t. instant coffee grounds (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small mixing bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla (and coffee grounds if using) mixing well. Add dry ingredients a little at a time mixing well between each addition. Dough will be firm.

Using a one inch cookie scoop form dough into balls. Roll dough balls in sugar, place on a silpat lined baking sheet and flatten slightly.

Bake 8-10 minutes. Immediately transfer cookies to a cooling rack.

Eat and enjoy!
