- Flour – 150 g
- Cocoa powder – 50 g
- Sugar – 160 g
- Vanilla sugar – 10 g
- Salt – 1 pinch
- Unsalted butter (72% fat) – 100 g
- Eggs – 2
- Baking powder – 1 tsp
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugar, vanilla sugar, salt, cocoa powder, and softened unsalted butter. Add in the eggs, flour, and baking powder, and mix until everything is fully combined.
Chill the dough in the freezer for 1 hour until it’s firm enough to roll into 25-30g balls.
Roll the dough balls in powdered sugar, making sure they are fully coated. Place them on a lined baking sheet, leaving some space between them since they will expand during baking.
Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes, until the edges are set but the centers are still slightly soft.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy the irresistible combination of rich chocolate and crinkled texture!
