This recipe is a must.
You need these cookies in your life!
Little bites of chocolate happiness
Make these cookies when you’re having people over and have nothing in the house.

Simple and elegant at the same time.
Suitable for picnics or on an fancy tea table.
Quick. Easy. And scrumptious.
Are you convinced?
Here’s the recipe. (Be sure to read my notes at the bottom.)
Chocolate Fork Cookies
(makes about 2 dozen)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar (scant)
1 cup (ish) all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt (generous)
2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
pinch of cinnamon (optional)
extra sugar for sprinkling on top
Preheat oven to 375°.
Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa, and cinnamon, if using. Mix well.
Form mixture into balls and place on parchement-lined baking sheets.
Squash each ball slightly with times of a fork.
Sprinkle with extra sugar.
Bake 15-22 minutes until firm. Cool on wire rack.
• I like to make them tiny, and usually get about 3 dozen. Makes them fancy!
• The original recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups flour, but I find that this makes the dough dry. If you need more, just flour your hands a bit. I start out with a mixer, but then get in there with my hands.
• Also, the original baking time is 8 minutes. Not with my oven! No way. (You know your oven.)
There you have it.
Enjoy! And remember, a recipe is different in everyone’s hands.
Oh, and be prepared for the question, “Can I have the recipe?”
