8:08 PM

To me, these cookies say Christmas.  Every year, my mom makes a huge batch of them.  Always a favorite, this is another good go-to recipe.

Mom's Chocolate Butter Cookies

  • ¾ c butter, softened
  • ½ c sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 ½ c flour
  • ¼ c cocoa

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream together butter and sugar at medium speed. Mix in egg yolk and almond extract. Beat until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).

In a separate bowl, sift flour and cocoa together.

Gradually add flour and cocoa until well combined (2-3 minutes).

Shape rounded teaspoonfuls as desired (1” balls, 2-3” logs, flattened balls, squares, rectangles, etc.) or used a cookie press.  Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 7-9 minutes or until set. Remove to a cooling rack and let cool.

Decorate with powdered sugar, melted chocolate, almond bark, candies, etc.
Makes about 3 dozen.
