RECIPE Soft Chocolate Cookies
1 1/2 c flour (use any kind you like)
1/2 c organic cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup room temperature)
¾ c coconut sugar or maple sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP heavy cream
Vanilla Orange Frosting:
2 sticks (1 cup) of salted butter (room temperature)
4 oz. cream cheese
1 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract
1-2 tsp orange zest
5-6 drops of orange essential oil or 1 tsp orange extract
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
In a bowl mix all your dry ingredients together. Flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix together
In a bowl with your stand mixer add your butter and sugar. Mix until incorporated, then add your egg, vanilla and heavy cream. Mix together. It will be a thick batter and that’s okay.
Form into balls about 1 tbsp. and place on a cookie sheet with parchment paper
Flatten with your fingers a little bit before placing in the oven.
Cook for 7 minutes and then take out immediately. You don’t want them to cook too long or they will be dry
Let cool for 10 minutes and then enjoy!
Once they are cooled then make my vanilla orange frosting. It makes a great combo!
*Use organic ingredients when feasible
*You could also put frosting on the bottom of 2 cookies to make a sandwich "oreo like" cookie, they are yummy!
