We're sorry we can't bring you cookies in person, but here is a recipe you can make at home.
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1½ teaspoon cream of tartar
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1¼ stick unsalted butter (room temperature)
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup (packed) light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup white sanding sugar
- 1¾ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Position baking rakes in the upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 375. Whisk flour, cocoa powder, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl.
- Beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until creamy (about two minutes). Increase the speed to medium high and beat until fluffy (about another 2 minutes). Beat in the egg and vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat in the flour mixture until just combined.
- Combine the sanding sugar and cinnamon in a small shallow bowl. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls with damp hands; toss in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Arrange about three inches apart on two ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake, switching the sheets halfway through, until the cookies are set around their edges (9-11 minutes). Transfer the sheets to cooling racks and let cool for two minutes, then remove the cookies to the racks to cool completely.
- Enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
