Santa's not the only one making a list this year! And I'm so excited to share the first of three fabulous recipes that I'll be creating for Rodelle Kitchen to share their month long holiday cookie celebration Cookies By The Dozens - the best of 2017 holiday cookies! You'll want to check back daily to make sure that you see and discover all of the wonderful recipes that the Rodelle Brand Ambassadors are sharing this year!
We love chewy sugar cookies, but my family LOVES these chewy Chocolate Sugar Cookies even more - and when frosted with Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting and sprinkled with holiday sprinkles? These are MAGICAL! These are always the first cookies to disappear from cookie trays, and I'll be baking many delicious batches this Christmas season.
When you want quality baked goods, you've got to start with quality products - and I'm so excited to share with you that Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract was just named Best Vanilla Extract in the Real Simple December 2017 edition - "with it's sweet aroma, dark color and lack of added sugars, this pure vanilla extract is as real as they come." Believe me, over the years I've tried so many vanilla products, but this my favorite brand by far - the best of the best!
I practice what I preach, and it really does make a difference in the quality of your cookies, cakes and other treats when you use the freshest and best ingredients that you can. With the skyrocketing cost of vanilla beans and cocoa beans, you really need to be careful in how your spend your ingredient dollars.
There isn't a bakery cookie out there that even comes close to how wonderfully fresh, chewy and chocolate-loaded these cookies are. So simple to make, you'll have the cookie dough chilling in less than 15 minutes - start to finish. No muss and no fuss - no rolling pin or cookie cutters required! A quick chill in the fridge, roll the dough into balls, roll in granulated sugar and place them on baking sheets. And the fun begins when my little ones help "press" the dough lightly with their little hands. They love helping with baking and they love seeing their little hand prints on these cookies before they go in the oven.
Frosted with the best Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting - twirled and swirled to your hearts content, and then let the sprinkling begin! Don't you just love holiday sprinkles on sugar cookies?
This family-favorite cookie recipe uses three different Rodelle products - Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract, Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa, and Rodelle Chocolate Extract.
