  • Mix together the flour, dark cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a mixer on medium speed.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla.
  • Lower the speed and gradually add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients in the mixer until well combined. The dough will be very thick.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour to chill the dough.
  • When you are ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place dough balls 2-inches apart, as cookies will spread while baking.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.



Tips and Techniques For Perfect Cookies

  • Measure the flour by spooning it into a measuring cup. Do not pack it.
  • Ensure that the baking powder and baking soda that you are using are fresh and not expired.
  • Chill the dough to help keep the cookies from spreading too much when baking.
  • Check the oven temperature with an oven thermometer to ensure that it’s actually heated to the proper temperature.
  • Store tightly covered at room temperature for up to 1-2 weeks.
