Scrappy Jessi's Cookie Swap

This is our contribution to Scrappy Jessi's Cookie Swap!
This recipe is from an old Martha Stewart magazine. We tried it and loved it so much we thought you would too!

Brownie Cookies

2 cups & 2 TBSP flour
¾ cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
2 ½ sticks unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
3 tsp. vanilla

Sift together flour,cocoa,baking soda, and salt. Set aside with mixer, beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, combine. Gradually add flour mixture at low speed. Chill till firm, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using cookie scoop, roll into balls and dip tops in sugar.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes.

Note: Any slight changes can dramatically change the texture of the cookies, such as when I forgot to sift the dry ingredients and just stirred them. It didn't taste right.

We love to bake cookies! I (Lindsey) started baking cookies when I was about 10 and enjoy baking them every winter.

We plan to share more of our favorite cookie recipes now until Christmas.

Head on over to Scrappy Jessi's blog to check out the other cookie participant's.
