A crunchy cookie with a rich chocolate flavor plus cinnamon


  • 6 TBS butter, at room temperature
  • 6 TBS brown sugar
  • 6 TBS white sugar
  • 1 extra large egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • sugar in the raw for rolling – about 1/4 cup


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Grease two baking sheets or use parchment or silicone liners
  • Cream the butter and two sugars until light and fluffy – about 5 minutes.
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla extract
  • Sift in the flour, cocoa, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder
  • Carefully blend together until you have a cohesive dough
  • Place the sugar in a raw in a small bowl
  • If you have a 1 TBS cookie scoop use that, otherwise scoop about a TBS of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll the ball in the sugar in the raw and place on the prepared cookie sheet about 2″ apart
  • Press the cookie balls down with a cup to flatten
  • Bake in the preheated oven, one tray at a time for 10 – 12 minutes
  • Cool the cookies on the tray for one minute before you remove to finish cooling on a wire rack.


Yield is going to depend on what size cookie you want. I made mine fairly large
