Winter Chocolate Brownie Cookies
A very easy, delicious cookie that manages to look attractive at the same time!
85g cocoa powder
400g caster sugar
125ml vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
250g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer or in your electric food mixer. Cover paste and chill – a few hours is good to ensure the mixture is manageable for moulding later.
2. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Line baking trays with parchment. Tip icing sugar into a shallow bowl. Take a spoon of dough and drop into the icing sugar and roll into 2.5cm balls with your hands. Make sure each ball is coated in icing sugar before placing onto prepared trays.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the baking tray for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.
Enjoy or share, or both!
