These soft, chewy, one-bowl(!) butter cookies might not be particularly fancy but they absolutely are delicious – and super simple.
- 1¼ cups butter, softened to room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 t vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- ¼ cup dark brown cocoa powder
- ½ t baking powder
- ½ t baking soda
- ¼ t salt
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (feel free to be a little heavy-handed here if you like)
DirectionsPut the butter and sugar in a large bowl and mix with your hand mixer until well combined – about 3 minutes or a little longer.
Next, add in the egg and vanilla and mix, followed by the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix again until everything is well combined.
Put away your mixer, add in the chips and stir with a wooden spoon until they’re evenly distributed.
Place the dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, with each cookie being about a tablespoon large.
Bake the cookies at 400 for about 6 minutes, or until the sides and bottoms start to get a little brown. Remove from the oven, leave them on the trays for a couple minutes for the cookies to set and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Makes about 40 or so cookies.
