On a Special Sunday’s post I made this delicious and easy cookies: Cocoa Cookies, that I found on one of my favorite Romanian blogs that I love to browse from time to time: Edith’s Kitchen.You can find the original recipe here.
My family was amazed by the results, despite the little changes that I made here and there. And my co-workers could not believe that something so delicious could come from so few (and let’s not forget HEALTHY) ingredients.
- 1/2 cup melted butter ( vegan )
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp cocoa
- 1 tsp of instant coffee
- 2 tbsp rum extract (you can add a bit more as the taste is not very strong after baking) ( you can also substitute the rum extract with other flavor of your choice; I made with almond extract as well )
- a pinch of Himalayan salt
In a bowl mix together the melted butter, the sugar, the egg, salt and the rum extract.
In a different bowl mix the flour, cocoa and baking soda.
Add the flour mixture over the butter mixture and mix well.
I have also tried a second batch substituting the egg with apple sauce. I have to admit in look they were slightly different but the taste was just: YUMMY !!!
One thing is sure. I added this cookies on the family list and preferences and because today is Family Day in Ontario, I hope you all have a great day.
