    Chocolate Cutout Sugar Cookies Recipe

    Recipe for cutout sugar cookies using sugar, butter, eggs, milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, flour, salt, baking powder, and colored sugar.

    I love baking cookies for special occasions throughout the year. I especially enjoy sugar cookies, and I have cookies cutters for all the holidays. Recently I modified by classic cutout sugar cookies recipe to make a delicious chocolate version of the classic treat.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups of white sugar
    • 1 1/4 cups of butter
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons of milk
    • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
    • 1 cup of cocoa powder
    • 3 1/4 cups of flour
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
    • colored sugar

    Directions

    1. Cream together the sugar and butter until fluffy.
    2. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla to the sugar and butter.
    3. Add the cocoa powder to the butter mixture.
    4. Stir together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
    5. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients. Combine until the dough cleans the side of the bowl.
    6. Cover the sugar cookie dough and place in the refrigerator for at least three hours.
    7. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    8. Roll the sugar cookie dough in a fourth-inch sheet on a floured surface.
    9. Cut the dough using holiday cookie cutters.
    10. Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet.
    11. Decorate with colored sugar.
    12. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden.
    13. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
    14. Allow the cookies to cool thoroughly.
    15. Store the chocolate sugar cookies in an airtight container.
