Chocolate Buttermilk Cookies

One thing I discovered when trying to find biscuits to make with buttermilk in them, as that you have to call them cookies.  If not, you end up getting recipes for what I would call Buttermilk Scones.  Scones!  Not biscuits!  So I’m thinking that all my biscuits should be called cookies.

These buttermilk cookies are crunchy on the outside, chewy in the middle, and taste quite like a brownie.  Perfect for when you’re feeling like chocolate but don’t have any on hand.

What you need:

2 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c butter (melted)
3/4 c cocoa powder
2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 c buttermilk
Chocolate chips, chopped nuts, etc (your choice, optional)

Preheat oven to 180C

1.  In a bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.

2.  In a large bowl combined melted butter and cocoa powder and whisk until very smooth.   Mix in sugar, vanilla and buttermilk.

3.  Gradually stir in flour mix until completely incorporated, then add any extras you want.  I didn’t and they were fine as they were 🙂

4.  If you are patient, put the cookie mixture into the fridge to cool before rolling into balls.  If you are like me and want them done now, take a couple of spoons and dollop small piles of mixture onto a lined tray.  Make sure the balls or piles are smallish and far enough apart, as they spread to flat.

Bake for about 10mins.  The cookies will still be soft, but should be hard around the edges… they will also be slightly puffy, but will de-puff as they cool.
