Double Chocolate Cinnamon Cookies
You guys know I simply adore all things chocolate.
Well these cookies were simply divine. They are dark dark chocolate and they were so wonderful. I made them for a church picnic while I was home for the weekend. The boys were playing football, everyone was milling around.
I snagged a few pictures of the adorable kids (which you will be able to see on my photography site… that is coming soon!)
These cookies keep incredibly well and are soft for days to come.

4 dozen cookies
A rich, fudgey and moist chocolate cookie with a fabulous flavor twist thanks to the addition of cinnamon. Recipe courtesy of McCormick Spice
- 2 cups flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons McCormick® Cinnamon, Ground
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
- 6 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Set aside. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate.
Drop by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto baking sheets sprayed with no stick cooking spray.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or just until cookies are set. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Tip: Prepare as directed, using 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chocolate chips in place of the baking chocolate.
Instead of following the directions, I accidentally melted all the chocolate and mixed it into the batter AND then added even more chocolate chips.
What can I say? I love chocolate!
