Ingredients
  • For the chocolate cookies
  • • All Purpose Flour, 1 cup or 130 grams
  • • Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon
  • • Cocoa Powder, ½ cup or 60 grams
  • • Salt, ½ teaspoon
  • • Softened Butter, ½ cup or 100 grams
  • • Powdered Sugar, ½ cup or 60 grams
  • • Dark Brown Sugar, ⅓ cup or 100 grams
  • • Egg, 1
  • • Vanilla Essence, 1 teaspoon
  • • Milk, 2 tablespoons (if required)
  • For the icing
  • • Icing sugar, 175 grams
  • • Milk, 2 tablespoons
  • • Vanilla Essence, 1 teaspoon
Method
  1. Sift together flour, cocoa powder and baking powder (also salt if you’re using unsalted butter) in a bowl and keep aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk butter until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes and then add in the sugars (powdered and white). Whisk the sugars and butter until they’re properly combined for about 2-3 minutes. Now add in the egg and whisk again for a minute. Add in vanilla essence.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients little by little. Fold the ingredients together until you no longer see dry flour. Add the milk now and mix it in the dough.
  4. Fold this cookies dough in cling film or foil and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Chilling for an hour is must but 2 hours is preferred. This will make your cookie dough easier to handle.
  5. Once your cookie dough is chilled take it out of the refrigerator and preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes.
  6. Line your baking tray with foil or parchment/butter paper.
  7. Take about 1 tablespoon of dough from the dough and shape it into individual balls and slightly flatten them. Do not flatten them too much because the cookies will spread.
  8. Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 180 Degrees for 11 minutes. The cookies will appear to be really soft at first but they will firm up a bit once they cool down.
  9. Now for the snowflakes!
  10. While the cookies are cooling down, make your icing. Add all the ingredients listed under "for the icing" and mix them until all the icing sugar is mixed and you have a thick sheen less icing. Make sure your icing isn't runny, you can assess that by looking at the amount of sheen in it. If your icing is really shiny that means it's liquidy, add more icing sugar to it until the shine dulls out. Slightly runny icing is good as that will be easier to work with.
  11. Now add the icing in a piping bag and cut the bag (very little) from the mouth to make way for the icing to come out. Start making the snowflakes once your cookies are completely cool. Refer to my video below to learn how to make it.
