Chocolate based cookies are always loved by kids. It turned out really yummy . Good quality of cocoa powder is very important for making cookies or cake. Taste depends on the quality of the cocoa powder used in cookies. I prefer Hersheys cocoa powder for my baking. Whenever unsalted butter is used , always add a pinch of salt to enhance the sweetness in cookies or cake. I have tried with melted butter and oil for a variation. Just mix all the ingredients and make a dough. Scoop it and bake them. So simple one! Do try and enjoy them at your tea time! Happy baking!!!
