Very delicious, hope you like it. We sure did ^_^

Chocolate Cookies 

Ingredients:

* 11/2C  All-Purpose Flour
* 11/2t   Baking Powder
* 1/4C   Cocoa Powder
* 1  Large Egg
* 1t        Vanilla Essence
* 1/2C    Margarine (or Butter)
* 1/2 C      Sugar

2. Sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder in a medium bowl and set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, cream the fat (margarine or butter) with the sugar for at least 5 minutes. Add the egg and beat for another 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and mix.
4. Add the flour and milk alternatively atleast 3 times, starting and ending with the flour. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

 The dough should not be like batter, cookie dough is drier.

5. If you would like to bake the cookies immediately (like we did ^_^), shape the dough into balls and then place them into the pan. Flatten them a bit with a spoon dipped in some floor to get the round shape.

(For better results, divide the cookie dough twice; then form two logs and place them in a refrigerator for up to 2 hours until they are firm. Then slice the log into cookie shapes and place them on the baking sheet.)

6. Place the cookies into the oven and bake for 20 - 25  minutes. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Then using a spatula, remove the cookies from the pan onto a cooling rack and let them cool completely.

Serve and enjoy the delicious chocolatey goodness ^_^.

  4. Hi Kenneth, thank you for reading the blog and trying out the recipe. For a more crunchier cookie; you can add just a bit more of sugar & Margarine (1/8 cup each) they should get crunchier. Let me know if that works for you thank you.
