Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Roll-out Cookies

October.jpeg

Have fun with this special Halloween cookie flavor!  I made the chocolate cookie dough extra dark, and paired it with an orange icing. Try out this haunting new flavor!

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 C flour
  • 2 C cocoa powder (I use Cookie Cowgirl Dark Cocoa Blend from Truly Mad Plastics to get that beautiful black cookie dough.  It is sooooo fudge-y!)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 C butter, softened
  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp hazelnut emulsion

 

Instructions

  1. Combine flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl
  2. In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

 

Preheat oven to 350*  Roll out and cut into desired shapes.  Bake 8 - 10 minutes.

  • Beat in egg and emulsion until well combined.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture at low speed.  Scrape down sides as needed until well combined.
     

Notes

*I pair these cookies with my royal icing recipe flavored with 1 TBSP of orange emulsion and it is fantastic!  

*and because my 11 year old Denver likes to do cookie experiments, we threw in some handfuls of mini m&ms into one batch of dough and it was even more chocolate-y!
