    Chocolate Sugar Cookies
    From Retro Desserts, as part of a homemade Oreo recipe

    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) room- temperature, unsalted butter
    1 large egg

    Set two racks in the middle of the oven. Preheat to 375 degrees.
    In a food processor, or bowl of an electric mixer, thoroughly mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda and powder, salt, and sugar. While pulsing, or on low speed, add the butter, and then the egg. Continue processing or mixing until dough comes together in a mass.
    Take rounded teaspoons of batter [For oversized ones, I used a 1/8 cup scoop] and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart. With moistened hands, slightly flatten the dough. Bake for 9 minutes, rotating once for even baking. Set baking sheets on a rack to cool.

      Considering we work on the same block, you are the one person who - in theory - does not need to feel teased. :)

      These look good! Did you bake them yourself?

      I made the same cookies a couple weeks ago! Everyone raved about them..even I liked them & I'm always my own worst critic.

      Mine were much darker though, and they weren't crackly like yours are..I wonder what the difference was? Whatever the different, I'm sure we can both consider ours a success (even if I think your cookies look better than mine did)
