Holiday Chocolate Sugar Cookie Recipe

My husband absolutely loves sugar cookies, however I don’t have the same feeling toward them as he does. (It’s safe to say that I could leave them if given the choice). But, because my husband loves them, I do end up making them quite often.

Good for me (and you) I’ve recently stumbled upon a recipe for chocolate sugar cookies. Now these are a sugar cookies I can learn to love, because I pretty much love chocolate anything. So, this holiday season, I will be making the chocolate version of my husband’s favorite cookies, so that I can enjoy them just as much as he does.

Holiday Chocolate Sugar Cookies

1/2 cup cold butter (containing salt)

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups flour

Vanilla frosting


Chop the butter into small cubes. Throw the butter, sugar, oil and vanilla into a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Add the egg and beat just until it is incorporated. Now add the cornstarch, cocoa powder and flour and mix until combined.

Roll the dough out so it is 1/4 inch thick, and then cut out cookies with your favorite Christmas cookie cutters. Place cookies onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes.

Let cookies cool on a wire rack and then frost and sprinkle.
