It’s Christmas, which means it’s time for some great cookies! Last year I was watching my calories so I didn’t make any. At the time, I decided it was best to avoid temptation. This year, I’m giving myself over to some sweet treats. After all, it’s the season to celebrate!
Today I wanted to share an absolutely delicious recipe. These cookies are a great way to use any leftover buttermilk you might have, and they’re easy to make. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups sugar
- 2/3 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (Robin Hood gives is the best!)
- 2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Melt the butter in a small microwave-safe bowl and pour it into your mixing bowl. Add the cocoa powder and use your electric mixer to mix until smooth and well-blended.
Add the sugar, vanilla extract, and buttermilk. Mix on medium speed until smooth.
Add the cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add the flour and mix on low speed until it is completely blended. Raise the speed to medium/high for about 20 seconds. Reduce the speed and mix in the chocolate chips.
Drop the dough in 1-inch balls (a little smaller than a golf ball) about two inches apart on a non-stick cookie sheet. The cookies will flatten out as they cook, so don’t put them too close together.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. The cookies should be set around the edges, but still a bit puffy.
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
This makes around 4 dozen cookies.
Let me know if you try this recipe! It’s an easy one, and oh, so delicious!
