These cookies are one of my favorites. They have a slightly crispy outside and a fudgy interior. You can under-bake them for a more gooey texture or you can bake them a little longer for a crispier cookie.
2 tablespoons room temperature butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon milk
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
Beat butter with sugar until fluffy.
Add 1 egg and vanilla and beat well.
Add cocoa, flour, baking powder and milk and beat well. Dough will be very sticky. Scrape bowl with spatula so all dough will be in center of bowl. With a tablespoon scoop dough and place on ungreased cookie sheet. You should get approximately 14 cookies. Dust cookies with powdered sugar. Press cookies into rounder shape (like the shape pictured) with your fingers. Bake in middle rack of oven until top of cookies cracks or about 9 minutes.
