Who out there likes snickerdoodles?! I thought so. Who likes chocolate?! Okay. So, why not put them together.
here. Before we took K so see Grammy and Granddaddy, I decided we should make these - Granddaddy likes chocolate, too.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1 large egg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a bowl, beat the butter with 1 cup of the sugar until creamy using a mixer. Add the melted
chocolate and the egg and beat until smooth. Beat in the dry ingredients
In a shallow bowl, mix the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar with the cinnamon and set aside.
Scoop out dough using a small ice cream scoop (or a soup spoon) and use your hands to
form into a ball. Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Transfer to baking sheets. Flatten to 2-inch rounds if desired...I didn't do this. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until the
cookies are puffed and cracked. Transfer to racks and let cool. Enjoy!
