For the 5th day of the Marathon... here is an easy breezy chocolate cookies...crunchy, buttery and melt in your mouth types...mmm...

Simple and very easy to make! The dough is slightly thicker than, I mean harder than regular cookie dough. So that the reason for the 'flowery look', which my kids enjoyed cos they look like flowers :)

You can skip adding the cocoa powder to make regular plain butter cookies, which also tastes just as great and make a good base for ice cream! :)

I use white whole wheat flour in equal quantities with white all purpose flour, so that the whole wheat taste stays subtle when the kids try them. This did help in keeping the flavor almost same.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup white whole wheat flour, unbleached
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter

little bit of confectioner's sugar or powdered sugar for dusting
Method:

Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat.

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and combine well.

Add the butter and mix well.

Make balls smaller than a golf ball and slightly flatten it on the parchment paper. they will crack on the edges giving them a flowery look!

Place them 1/2 inch apart.

Bake them for 15-20 minutes. They will be slightly soft when hot.
When they become cool, they will harden up.

Dust with powdered sugar when cool.

Serve when cool.

Enjoy!!!
