These cookies are delicious. The dough, while stiff, was easy to roll and the flavor is amazing.
I was very surprised how much I liked this recipe. The cookie has a nice deep chocolate flavor. Your cookies hold their shape beautifully both after cutting and baking. I highly recommend this recipe.
This is the chocolate rollout cookie recipe I've been looking for! Kid-friendly, nice chocolate flavor, pretty easy to work with. This is a keeper.
What kind of chocolate do you use? Powered or do you melt chocolate?
I have made cut out cookies for Christmas since 1972. I went over this recipe, compared it to the one I use every year, and they were similar. One problem I had was with the dough. When I added the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture, there seemed to be dry ingredients left over. I did not want to add an egg, but I knew I need to add something to that amount of dry mixture. I added about 1/3 C of half and half, and then it was all mixed. These taste good; they smell like brownies baking. I did not use the icing.
This is the first chocolate cut out cookie dough I've made. I made "scardy cat" cookies for halloween. At the end of baking, I quickly pressed candies into the cat face to create eyes and nose. Very easy to work with, fun, and delicious!
I just made these using my Halloween cookie cutters. That way I have “black” cats and bats without having to make black frosting. The dough was very easy to roll out and cut. Being a dark chocolate lover, I was hoping for a little more chocolate flavor, but they still tasted great.
Dough mixed up beautifully. Tasted amazing!!! Definitely going to be a Christmas cookie tradition
