This decadent cookie is sure to please the chocolate lover in your life!
For the cookies:
Combine flour, cocoa and baking soda in a small bowl and whisk until fully incorporated. Set aside.
In your mixer, combine butter and sugar. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add in egg and mix for another minute. Add in flour mixture, then Chambord, and continue mixing until all is incorporated. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour (or overnight), allowing the flavors to deepen.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. The dough will be thick and fudge-like. Use a spoon or your hands to grab a walnut-sized portion of dough and roll into a ball. Place on sheet and press down just a little. Bake for 9 minutes or until cookies are cracked a bit on top and cooked through. Allow cookies to cool for a bit on your baking sheet, then place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
For the drizzle:
Once your cookies are completely cooled, prepare the drizzle by combining the powdered sugar, cocoa and Chambord. If you need to add a bit more Chambord to get it to mix well, you can add up to an additional 1/2 tablespoon more. Just don’t make it too loose, since you want the drizzle to firm up just right.
Scrape your drizzle in a plastic baggie, snip of just a tiny bit of one corner of the bag, and drizzle away! Allow the drizzle to firm up before storing the cookies (to speed it up, chill them a bit).
Note: The cookies is also delicious without the drizzle (less Chambord flavor).
Happy holidays! Enjoy!
This time of year, we are all looking for that perfect cookie recipe that will get Santa to leave a gift for even the naughtiest of people. These cookies might just be them. The simple, no fail base can be customized to whatever candies or chip combination you desire. I have made these for years and have never been disappointed.
