Bill's Chocolate Cookies

Print Friendly and PDF
Delicious!  You have to try Bill Lemire's chocolate cookies.  Not only is he a great dentist, sailor, biker and the husband of my best buddy, Corinne, he bakes!  These cookies are rich and chocolatey.  You won't be able to eat just one.

2 cups plus 2 T flour
3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
Sanding sugar for rolling (Turbinado)

Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl.  Beat butter and sugar on medium speed with mixer until light and fluffy about 2 minutes.  Add eggs and vanilla and continue to mix.  Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture; beat to combine.  Form dough into a flattened disk, wrap with plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 1 hour.  Heat oven to 350 degrees, shape dough into 1-1/4 inch balls.  Roll each ball into sanding sugar.  Place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.  Bake 10-12 min, rotating sheet halfway through.  Transfer to cooling rack for 5 min.
