Chocolate half-hour cookies

Jerry Stratton, April 28, 2006

Last night I had the urge for chocolate, and the only chocolate I had on hand was powdered cocoa. Half-hour cookies are great as chocolate cookies: replace the cinnamon and allspice with four tablespoons of cocoa.

They’d probably be even better if you add the cocoa in addition to the spices.

Despite the significant additional powder, the recipe didn’t seem to require any extra yogurt or butter, but you might add a half-tablespoon extra butter or yogurt if it starts coming out too dry.

In response to Half hour cookies: From start to finish, you can be eating the first batch of these crunchy, sweet cookies in just under half an hour, using ingredients that, if you bake at all, you almost certainly already have on hand.
