Frosted Chocolate Drop Cookies

Posted on

These thick cake-like cookies are a recipe from my mom.  She made them all the time when I was growing up.  Her recipe calls for milk, but all I had on hand was whipping cream and they turned out GREAT!

This was a busy week and these were just a last-minute dessert for friends.  Quick and easy- you can top them with a chocolate glaze or frosting.  I used my favorite buttercream frosting- so yummy, but since it doesn’t harden completely they weren’t stackable.  This is a great recipe to have handy for a busy week that still needs dessert in it!

INGREDIENTS:

Cookies:

  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 squares of unsweetened baking chocolate (melted)
  • 1 t. vanilla

Frosting:

  • 1/2 stick of salted butter
  • 1/2 stick of unsalted butter
  • 3/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla (use clear if you want your frosting to stay nice and white)

DIRECTIONS:

Cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream sugar and margarine together.
  • Add egg, cream and vanilla and mix well.
  • Add sifted soda, salt and flour and mix well.
  • Add melted chocolate last and mix until completely combined.
  • Using a Medium cookie scoop, spoon cookie dough out onto cookie sheets covered in parchment paper (makes 24-28 cookies).
  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
  • Cool completely on parchment paper.

Frosting:

  • Place (room temp) butter in mixing bowl with powdered sugar and vanilla.
  • Beat on high until very light and fluffy.
  • Frost cookies and enjoy!


My thoughts:  Only one– the cookie dough is AMAZING….amazing……I don’t recommend the eating of cookie dough that contains raw eggs.  You definitely shouldn’t do it…..or let your kids do it……….. soooooooooo good……. 😉
