About this recipe: These extra chocolaty cookies will cast a chocolate spell on you. This recipe includes a chocolate coating or drizzle but you can add icing on top, sandwich two cookies together, or just eat them plain.
Is this halal? Because I need it for a school home econs project and it must be halal - 23 Feb 2013
I just came back to get this recipe because I lost it and I use it every Christmas to make our "Perfect Men" cookies: gingerbread men made of chocolate shortbread. We love this recipe, but we change it just a little. We use 1/2 cup extra cocoa and 1/2 cup less of flour. This way, the dough is the same consistency, but flavor is much more chocolatey. Thanks for a great recipe! - 01 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Substituted 1/2 c more cocoa for 1/2 c flour, added pinch of baking soda. Melted the butter, mixed the wet ingredients, sifted the dry ingredients together, added the dry to the wet. Chilled it for about 30 minutes. Rolled 1/4 inch thick. 1 1/2 inch heart cookies took 6 minutes, 3 inch heart cookies took 8 minutes. These are sturdy enough to use in cookie bouquets. I did not add chocolate, but piped icing. Excellent flavor. They are better after several hours rather than straight out of the oven. - 07 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
