Chewy Chocolate Thins Cookies… well, the name says it all. These cookies are delicious in their simplicity. I included these cocoa gems in my first College Care Package to my daughter! Click here to read the blog post, How To Make A College Care Package.
Just look at these babies. Don’t be deceived by their plain-Jane looks. They are exquisite.
How about chasing these cookies with some other yummies? Here are the three other treats I added to my daughter’s Care package:
Chewy Chocolate Thins
2/3 c. cocoa powder
2-1/3 c. all-purpose flour, unbleached
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. dark brown sugar
1 c. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 TB strong coffee
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the sugar, brown sugar, and butter for about 3 minutes until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add in the vanilla and egg, and mix until combined. Mix in the coffee.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients in 2 or 3 additions, and mix together on low speed until combined. The mixture will look light and a little sticky.
Drop the dough onto the lined baking sheets by tablespoonfuls, with about 2″ between each cookie. A small cookie scoop is really helpful with this step.
Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. The cookies will flatten and be just firm enough to easily move with a spatula. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack. Once completely cool they may be stored in a sealed container for up to 4 days.
Makes about 36 cookies.
