Chocolate Cupcake Cookies!

I'm super excited about these cookies. First of all, they taste stupidly good! I mean stupidly good because I was stupid enough to eat most of the raw dough. They taste like rich brownies... and they make adorable chocolate cupcake cookies! I made these cookies to honor a couple of hard working students - a celebration for hard work. Too bad they didn't get to eat them because of the snow day we had. I had to make another dessert for them instead (which I'll post later).


Chocolate? Okay, so you can't quite see the cookies behind the icing, but that's okay. I've been working hard to make the cupcake cookie look cute. I had a great idea when I made them, but I truly believe the strong colours were too much. I wish I had some pastel type of dye (rather than the Wilton kinds I have now). I need to order Americolor!

Chocolate? Check out this picture instead! OH :: drools :: cookie-licious!


Are you drooling yet? Well, I'll share the recipe with you. Seriously, give it a shot!

Chocolate Brownie Cookies:

1 tbsp instant coffee
1/2 c cocoa (good dark chocolate cocoa - almost forgot this part!Thanks Christie!)
1 tbsp warm water
1 cup butter or margarine
1 pinch salt
1 c sugar
1 lg egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cup flour

Directions:

Oven to 325 degrees.

1. Dissolve coffee in water. Cream butter and sugar together. Add salt,egg, vanilla and coffee sludge :).

2. Mix cocoa into the mix and slowly add in the flour - mix until dough completely even in colour. Watch the bottom too!

3. Let dough chill for 1 hour, roll out onto floured surface, cut shapes (1 inch thick), then place on baking sheet. Chill the uncooked dough in the freezer for 3 minutes (to keep the shape crisp). Bake for 7-10 minutes or until cooked through. Place on wire wrack to cool, decorate.




Hope you are all having a great Thanksgiving weekend!

I love your cupcake cookies! I will have to try the recipe when I next make sugar cookies. I tend to find sugar cookies a bit bland but these sound delicious. x

Wow, I have to try these. I've recently started making cut out sugar cookies, but I'd much rather prefer cutout brownies. Yum!
