Food Storage Recipe Monday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on December 20, 2010

I thought that it would be a great use of this blog to post food storage friendly recipes every Monday. I have gotten several comments that people would LOVE more recipes. If you have a recipe that you love and would like to share, please email it to me!

Top Secret Chocolate Cookies

2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temp.
2 C sugar
2 large eggs (2 TBS+1/2 C water)
1 TBS vanilla extract
3/4 C cocoa powder
2 cups flour (I do 1/2 wheat flour and 1/2 AP flour)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
white sugar, for rolling

In a large bowl, add the butter and sugar. Cream together with a hand mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla to the creamed mixture and mix until combined. In a medium bowl, mix the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Mix until well incorporated.

Roll the dough into 2 logs that are about 2 inches high and 1 foot long. Wrap them in waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.*

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.

Once thoroughly chilled, slice cookies into 1/2 thick rounds and cover with the sugar. Place on baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove to a wire rack to cool.

*If you want to give this as a neighbor gift I would wrap it then tie it with a bow. The sugar for covering I would put in a ziploc bag. Then put a card with it that says “Keep refrigerated. When ready to bake, slice into 1/2 inch rounds and dip in sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.”

Enjoy!
