  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (120 grams)
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (42 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsalted butter , softened to room temperature (113 grams, 1 stick)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup granulated sugar , for rolling (66 grams)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar , for rolling (55 grams)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line sheet pan(s) with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, instant espresso, and ground cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
  • With electric mixer, beat butter and sugar on a medium high speed until light and creamy, and mixture sticks to the sides of the bowl, about 3-4 minutes. Scrape down the bowl once or twice as needed.
  • Add egg, followed by vanilla, mixing after each.
  • Add flour mixture and mix on low speed until combined and dough is uniform.
  • Portion dough into 1.5 tablespoons (this is the cookie scoop I use) and roll into rounds.
  • Roll dough in granulated sugar and then powdered sugar until completely covered. Place on prepared sheet pan.
  • Bake until cookies about 1 minute after the point where they appear "cracked" and have start to spread, about 10-12 minutes total.
  • Let cookies cool on sheet pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat with remaining cookie dough. Store baked cookies in an airtight container for several days.
