Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour , spooned and leveled (careful not to over measure)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened to room temperature
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar , lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg , room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3 teaspoons red food coloring , liquid or gel
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chip cookies

Instructions

  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, cornstarch, baking soda & salt. 
  • In a separate large bowl beat the butter and sugars together on medium speed until light & fluffy. 
  • Beat in the egg, vanilla extract and food coloring.
  • With the mixer on low, beat in the flour mixture about 1/2 at a time. 
  • Turn off the mixer and stir in the chocolate chips. 
  • Using a cookie scoop, form dough into balls of about 1 tablespoon in size. I got a total of 27 cookies. Put cookies on a plate, cover with cling wrap, and refrigerate for 3+ hours.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. The tops should look almost set when you remove them from the oven. 
  • Place cookies 2 inches apart on the tray, and bake for 7-9 minutes. 

Notes

*Since the dough is sticky - If you don't have a cookie scoop, I recommend first chilling the dough in its mixing bowl for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Then remove the dough from the fridge, form it into balls of about 1 tablespoon and chill for an additional 2+ hours prior to baking.
