I love a nice, soft sugar cookie. But recently I’ve discovered there’s something I love even more. A nice, soft chocolate sugar cookie!
Apparently, these cookies are a copycat version of the Swig sugar cookies that are popular in Utah. I’ve never had one, so I can’t compare. But I can tell you that these are delicious!
I don’t know about you, but I’m a soft cookie person. My son recently revealed that he preferred crispy cookies, and I was a little taken aback. How could this be? Nevertheless, he loved these soft chocolate cookies too.
And what’s not to love about a rich chocolate cookie with a creamy fudge frosting? Nothing, I say. Nothing!!!
On tip for flattening the cookies. Before you dip your glass into the sugar, spray it with a bit of non-stick cooking spray so the sugar will actually stick. Then use the sugar coated glass to flatten your cookie.
And it’s also really important not to over-bake these cookies, or they won’t be as soft. Unless you are my son and like crispy cookies!
I so suggest using Dutch-process cocoa in this recipe. It will give your cookies a richer taste and a more intense chocolate flavor. But regular, unsweetened cocoa powder will work fine too, and is probably what you have in your pantry. Either way, these chocolate frosted sugar cookies are amazing!
Be sure to save this cookie recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
