Chocolate Sugar Cookies


Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m
showing you how to make Chocolate Sugar Cookies I love sugar cookies and I love
chocolate so combining the two. It is a match made in heaven. You can either make
this using a hand mixer but today I’m going to show you how to make it using a
stand mixer. Either will work. To start you’ll need 1 cup of softened butter, 1/4
cup or 2 ounces of softened cream cheese, and then 11/4 cup of granulated
sugar and we’ll mix this together until it’s smooth and creamy. You want the
mixture to be well combined together See how this is smooth and creamy? That is
what we’re looking for. Then add in 1 egg 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 2
tablespoons of corn syrup which will keep our cookies and nice and soft but
if you have negative feelings about corn syrup you can feel free to leave it out. Next you’ll need 2/3 of a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and we need
to melt these so I’m going to melt mine in a microwave in 15 second increments,
stirring in between and then we’ll pour that melted chocolate into our mixing
bowl. Fun fact: instead of the chocolate chips you can actually just use Nutella
for Nutella sugar cookies .Then we’ll give this a mix then we’ll add in 1/3
cup of cocoa powder 3 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon
of baking powder 3/4 of a teaspoon of salt and
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda Then we’ll mix this together until it forms a
nice dough. Be sure to stop and scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as
necessary to make sure everything gets mixed in. Then we’ll turn this dough out
onto a sheet of plastic wrap. I’ll kind of press it into a nice little ball and
flatten it out into a disc. Then we’ll wrap this up in the plastic wrap and
then we’ll pop this in the fridge for at least 1 hour. After an hour you should
have a nice hard little disc here so we’ll unwrap it from the plastic wrap
and then place it onto a lightly floured surface so we can roll it out. You want
to roll it until it’s about 1/4 inch thick then we’re gonna use these fun little cookie cutters and cut out some shapes.
Once they’re cut we’ll just pop them out of the cookie cutter and place them onto
a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once you’ve cut out what you can gather up
all the scraps and form them into a ball again and then roll it out again to the
same thickness and then continue cutting and re rolling your dough as necessary.
Depending on what cookie cutters you use to cut your cookies you’ll get somewhere
between 24 and 36 cookies out of this recipe. Next we’re gonna bake these in a
375-degree oven for about 10 minutes Now any cookies that are not in the oven
should be kept in the fridge until ready to bake to prevent spreading so that
they’ll hold their shape. Now once they’re done baking we’re gonna let them
cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring them from the pan to
the wire rack to cool completely and then that’s it! Once they’re cooled you
are ready to eat. You can decorate them or serve them up plain. Thanks for
