unsweetened cocoa powder
packed brown sugar
Just made these cookies again.. I know, I'm a chocoholic....You too??
I sifted the cocoa into the mixture, dry instead of using the extra 3 TBS of butter.. a good thing! Much better cookie than the last too....Abit extra height and more flavor...MAGIC!
I can't really rate this recipe because I didn't follow it exactly! Like other posters, I added the cocoa to the dry ingredients and skipped the melted margarine alltogether. Also, I rolled them in powdered sugar instead of granulated and...I LOVE these cookies! They're firm, yet so soft in the middle, and the powdered sugar is kind of absorbed into the tops of the cookies, creating a subtle marbling effect that I really like. I can't rate the recipe as it is, but with these modifications, it's my favorite chocolate cookie!
The recipe as written isn't bad. We finished off 2 batches as I continued to fiddle with the recipe. I finally changed the recipe by omitting the cocoa powder/melted butter step completely. Instead, I sifted the cocoa in with the dry ingredients and left out the extra 3 tablespoons of margarine. The dough was much, much less sticky and gooey and much easier to roll. Instead of regular sugar, I rolled ours in powdered sugar and we like the taste and texture better. For the recipe as submitted, I give it 4 stars. With the minor changes, it's a 5 and definitely one I'll make again and again.
I am the baker who originally submitted this recipe. I like the recipe just the way it is as I submitted it because it makes it a thinner, more crisp cookie like a ginger snap (which is my all time favorite!). Of course alter the recipe the way you prefer for taste, texture or dietary reasons but please don't knock my recipe. Everyone has their own tastes and what they like. I am glad to see the recipe is well rated though...enjoy as I have! :)
Apologies to the cook for skipping the melted butter/cocoa step, but in the interest of time I sifted the cocoa with the dry ingredients like other reviewers. This is a great, standard chocolate cookie. I used dark brown sugar and a touch of instant coffee to enhance the chocolate flavor and it really suited my tastes.
I agree with reviewer "martinmom" completely with the revisions made. I made the recipe as is, but I would make it next time with those changes. First of all, when you melt 3 tbsp. margarine and mix in 1/2 cup baking cocoa powder, it turns into chocolate "glop". I let it cool, and tried to incorporate it into the other ingredients by stirring, but I finally used the mixer. I will just sift the cocoa in with the dry ingredients next time. Also, the dough was VERY sticky, even though I left it in the fridge overnight. I had to frequently rinse my hands as they became sticky while rolling the cookies. Also, make sure to put the dough in the fridge inbetween batches or it will "melt". The granulated sugar on the outside was...well...grainy... I tried powdered sugar for the next batch and it was much better. Finally, these are good cookies, inbetween a chocolate cookie and a sugar cookie. Not overly chocolatey tasting, but not overly sugar cookie tasting either.
these are REALLY good. The only thing I did different is I did not bother chilling or roll in sugar. I immedately dropped by large spoon (I always make big cookies) on a cookie sheet and baked. Flavor and texture was PERFECT
