Chocolate cookies that are super simple and quick to bake
Today I’m making a true Swedish classic. A straight translation of the name would be “chocolate cuts”, but I guess calling them cut chocolate cookies sounds better. They are so simple to make that even people who say they can’t bake most probably will have success here. As with any Swedish baking, they fit perfectly when you want to take a fika with friends.
Tasty cut chocolate cookies
Baking time including preparation: 30 minutes
Portions: 48 cookies
- 200 g room tempered butter or margarine
- 1 3/4 dl (175 ml) sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
- 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tbsp molasses
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 4 1/2 dl wheat flour
Turn on your oven at 175°C.
Mix all ingredients to a dough. If you use a machine you will need to work it together with your hands on the table afterwards.
Split the dough in four parts and roll them out to the length of your baking tray (a bit thicker than a finger). Put the rolls on the buttered baking tray or on oven paper.
Decorate them with nib sugar if you want.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Cut the lengths diagonally in 12 pieces each to form the cookies. Cut them while still warm from the oven to prevent them from crumbling.
