Christmas Chocolate Cookies
'Tis is the season to bake like there's no tomorrow!
Christmas time is perfect to get more creative with your bakery creations and indulge ourselves with some tasty sweets and desserts. Italian panettones, chocolate roulades, decorated cookies, rich poundcakes...and the list goes on! :-)
Today I'm bringing you a slightly customized recipe I took from Martha Stewart's original Chocolate Cookie Cutouts recipe.
Cookies aren't my specialty (still have to control the baking time a bit more) but I must say these ones were pretty easy to make and they came out tasty and sweet.
Have everybody a Merry Christmas and let's start the new year with positive thoughts!
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour.
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa powder.
1/8 teaspoon salt.
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature.
1 1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar.
1 large egg, lightly beaten.
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
