These Chocolate Sugar Cookies are so simple to make and melt in your mouth delicious! They go perfect with a good cup of coffee or tea and are a great holiday cookie!
In a bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
In the bowl of your mixer, add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth, I mixed mine about 3 minutes. Add the flour mixture in batches about 1/3 at a time and mix.
Transfer the dough to a big piece of plastic wrap and gently knead it until it forms a ball. Wrap the cookie dough and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.
I found it easier to cut the dough in 4 pieces and roll out each piece at a time so that it's about 1/4 of an inch in thickness. Cut the cookies with your favorite cookie cutter.
Place the cookies onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 9 to 11 minutes, just until the edges are firm and the center still slightly soft. Repeat with remaining dough.
Transfer to a rack and cool. If you wish you can sprinkle them with icing sugar.
This recipe will yield about 48 cookies.
I used this sun cookie cutter.
You can refrigerate the dough over night.
To freeze, place sugar cookies in an airtight container and place in the freezer for up to 3 months.
