This crowd-pleasing cookie dough can be made ahead and frozen. Simply shape dough into a log before freezing. Then thaw, slice and bake. I have friends who play dominoes each week, so plan to surprise them one day with these. This needs to be chilled for one hour, so plan accordingly. Adapted from Country Living magazine.
- 1 1⁄2 cups unsweetened cocoa (I like to use dark, but any will do)
- 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour (I substitue 1/4 cup whole wheat flour)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup heavy cream
- 1⁄4 cup large white chocolate chips
- Sift the cocoa, flour, and salt together into a medium bowl and set aside.
- Beat the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on medium high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the cocoa mixture.
- Add the vanilla extract and cream and beat until a dough forms. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
- Roll the dough to 1/4" thickness, cut 16 2" by 4 " rectangles, and place on baking sheets. Score each rectangle in the middle the short way, and press in the white chocolate chips to create dominos.
- Place the cookies on a prepared baking sheet. Chill for 15 minutes. Bake for 13 minutes.
- Cool on the pan for 5 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
