{ Chocolate Sugar Cookies }

Part I of the most delicious Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches you'll ever taste. Stay tuned for the entire recipe, coming to you later this week!

In the meantime, get started on these chocolate sugar cookies. They're amazing.

All in all, this is a very simple dough to make, with ingredients you probably already have at home! Start by making the wet mix.

Into a bowl, add the buttercoconut oil, and sugar {I chose to add coconut oil to this dough because I love the flavor/texture it gives these cookies—however, you could always replace it with vegetable oil, or just more butter}. 

Cream these ingredients together until light and fluffy.

Next, add in the egg and vanilla. Then continue to beat until everything is combined.

Now, put all of the dry ingredients into a separate bowl. Combine the flourcocoa powderbaking soda, and salt.

Mix it all up...

Into the wet bowl, slowly add your dry mix in increments—stirring each time you add more. 

Continue this process until all of the dry is combined into the wet...

...and you have a solid, chocolately dough!

Finally, refrigerate for 30 minutes.
{or overnight if you’d like to make the dough ahead of time}

When your dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 350 F and line separate baking sheets with parchment paper.

Scoop your dough out onto the parchment lined sheets.

Then, roll them in the extra sugar.

Once they are coated generously in sugar...

...flatten each with your hand to ensure that the cookies bake evenly.

Into the oven for 12-15 minutes, and voilà!


...and a big thanks to my pretty little hand model for the day, Brenna.
