  • Yield: Makes 2 1/2 dozen


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Dutch cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar


Beat butter and granulated sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add egg, beating well.

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a separate bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Stir in vanilla and chocolate.

Divide dough into 2 equal portions, and place on wax paper. Roll each portion into an 8-inch log. Place in freezer 30 minutes.

Brush logs with egg yolk. Divide turbinado sugar in half; roll each log in sugar, coating completely. Cut each log into 1/2-inch slices (about 15 slices), and place on parchment-lined baking sheets 1 inch apart.

Bake at 375ยบ for 12 to 14 minutes or until set. Remove parchment paper and cookies to wire racks; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer cookies from parchment paper to wire racks to cool completely.
