Ingredients

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter , at room temperature (170 grams)
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar (300 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 grams)
  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder (60 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Coarse sugar or salt , for sprinkling (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar on medium high speed until light and creamy, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Add the vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the mixer and mix until just combined.
  • Scoop by the rounded tablespoon onto the prepared sheet pan.
  • Bake until edges are crisp, about 9 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with coarse sugar or salt. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for several days.
