Easy Chocolate Cookies - and God are they GOOD!

Hi dolls! So it's clearly been a while since my last post, finding time to bake lately has been a struggle. I found this recipe on, and the chick who posted it said that it is a recipe from a Williams-Sonoma Kids Baking Cookbook.

They truly are very easy to make, and I actually had all of the ingredients in my kitchen already (not having to drag myself to the store after a long day of work was a huge plus!) I made them for my boss's birthday, and everyone raved about them! I must have sent out this recipe to 5 different people who asked me how to make them. They have the consistency of a cake inside, really moist and soft. Some of my powdered sugar melted off (as seen above) but it didn't make them taste any less awesome! OK so here it goes...

Easy Chocolate Cookies

Yields: 24 cookies
Prep time: 15min
Cook time: 10min
Total time: 25min

1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Grease 2 baking sheets with butter (or spray).
3. Put the confectioners' sugar into a medium bowl and set aside.
4. In another medium bowl, stir together the four, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
5. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter and sugar for about 3 minutes (until creamy). Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl!
6. Add one egg to the bowl and beat until blended. Then, add the second egg.
7. Add the flour mixture. Mix on low speed until blended.
8. Using a tablespoon, scoop up a rounded spoonful of dough.
9. Roll the dough into a ball using your hands.
10. Roll the ball in the confectioners' sugar until covered.
11. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet.
12. Space each ball of dough about 2 inches apart.
13. Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, until crackled and puffed.
14. Enjoy! (:.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!! xoxo
