My kind of snowstorm...chocolate.
These are the best cookies I've made in years. No kidding.
I found them on a blog...sorry I don't remember where...it was an accident. And the gal didn't invent the recipe anyway. She found it like me.
Let me suggest that you don't even taste the dough because then you may never even bake it up. Yep, it's that good. Secondly...these things are irresistible while warm. Cold...the next day, they are just normal good cookie.
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cocoa powder
3/4 tsp soda
3/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350º.
Beat sugar and butter. Add egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix all dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to batter and mix just until combined. Chill dough for 30 minutes. (Seriously try to forget about it). Bake for 12-15 minutes. (The recipe didn't say to, but I baked my cookies on parchment paper). Let cookies cool only slightly on sheet and then drop them into a bowl of powered sugar, cover them, brush off the excess and place them on a cooling rack.
Then eat them one right after the other.
