Chocolate Cookies

  • 1 cup salted butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cornstarch

Cheesecake Frosting

  • 2 tbsp salted butter softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch salt
  • milk optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Using either a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, cream together the buttter and sugars until light in color and fluffy.
  • Scrape the sides and add in the eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and cornstarch. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Double scoop the cookie dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. (Use two scoops to make one cookie)
  • Dip the bottom of a drinking glass into a small bowl of sugar and then carefully and slowly flatten the cookie dough. You may want to spray the bottom of the cup with non-stick spray before the first cookie.
  • Repeat with remaining cookies. Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes. Cool completely.
  • While the cookies are cooling, mix together all of the ingredients for the frostiing until extremely smooth. You can thin the frositng out with just a tad of milk. A little will go a long way.
  • Once the cookies are completely cool, spread the frositng into the indent of the cookie.
  • Store in the fridge and serve cold.
