Mocha Sugar CookiesCuisinart Original Recipe
2 tablespoons milk (may use low-fat)
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
3 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1½ teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ pound (3 sticks) unsalted butter, cubed and at room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine the milk, espresso powder and vanilla in a small bowl. Stir to blend; reserve. Put the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt into a separate small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine; reserve. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar. Using a Cuisinart® Hand or Stand Mixer fitted with the mixing beaters/ paddle, mix until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and yolk, one at a time, and then the milk mixture until completely combined. Add the reserved dry ingredients and mix on low, until just combined. Fit the Cuisinart® Electric Cookie Press with desired disc as instructed on page 2. Load the cookie dough to the MAX fill line. Press cookie dough out onto an ungreased/unlined baking pan, about 1 inch apart. Bake in the preheated oven for about 12 minutes, or until just set. Cool cookies before removing from pan.
