Test Recipe

These are cool cookies. Still not sure on recipe formatting, help me out here.

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Recipe by Eileen Rhoadarmer - 2nd Generation Allergy Mom

Contains wheat and dairy. Gluten-free flour and Earth Balance (or similar) "butter" substitute would easily correct this!
Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 6 min
Total time: 2 hours
Yield: 5-6 dozen cookies
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Ener-G egg replacer
  • 8 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
Cooking Directions
  1. Cream butter and sugar.
  2. Beat in Ener-G and vanilla. Stir in cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Switch to a dough hook if using a stand mixer. Then gradually add flour and mix until fully combined.
  4. Cover/wrap and chill 1+ hours.
  5. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out cookies and cut. I cut the cookies on the plastic wrap I had used to refrigerate the dough, and I didn't have to dust anything with flour. It worked well!
  6. Place 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool completely.
  7. Once cool, decorate with your choice of frosting.
  8. Enjoy!

And here are the process pics:
I cut them out on the plastic wrap I had refrigerated them in. No need to use flour, so much less mess!

Give frosting to a small child and ask them to decorate. Then wipe their faces and finish the job after they get bored.

A party spread worthy of the Superbowl. (This was only about a third of our food.)
The bbq pulled pork I made to go with it.
