“Cocoa powder and brown sugar make this easy drop cookie recipe taste like rich brownies.”


    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
    • ¼ cup butter
    • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
    • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
    • ¼ cup buttermilk or sour milk (see Tip)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • Non-stick cooking spray
    • 1 tablespoon sifted powdered sugar


  • 1 In a small bowl stir together flour and baking soda; set aside. In a medium saucepan melt butter; remove from heat. Stir in granulated sugar, cocoa powder and brown sugar. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture just until combined. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour. (Dough will be stiff.)
  • 2 Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Drop chilled dough by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Tip: To make ¼ cup sour milk, place ¾ teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make ¼ cup total liquid; stir. Let mixture stand for 5 minutes before using.
