Double chocolate bear paw sugar cookies instructions
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with foil or parchment paper..
- In a large bowl, melt 10 tbsp of butter in the microwave. Cut the remaining 4 tbsp into 6-8 pieces and stir into the melted butter. Allow the butter to cool until it is only warm, not hot..
- While waiting on the butter to cool, in a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside..
- Combine the butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt. Mix for 1 minute on medium speed or until smooth. Add the egg and mix another 30 seconds. (I do not condone letting your 4 year old use an electric mixer but little arms may get tired of hand mixing fast!).
- With mixer on slow, add flour and mix. Add chocolate chips..
- Roll the dough into balls using about 2-3 tbsp for each one. Place on cookie sheet and flatten with the bottom of a glass. They do not expand much, but leave an inch or so between cookies go be safe..
- Add 4 almond slivers to each cookie for the 'claws'. The kids love this part..
- Bake on middle shelf until the cookies are puffy and starting to crack. About 12-14 minutes. Do not overcook or your cookies will be dry!.
