Roll out Chocolate Cocoa Sugar Cookies

Roll-out Chocolate Cocoa Sugar Cookies

These are great , elegant, simple cookies that go well with a cup of expresso or tea. They stay crunchy and i also use this dough to make the crust for my chocolate ganache tart.It freezes well raw and you can either cut it with a cookie cutter or roll the dough into logs , refrigerate and slice . I have added this video for those who have a fit rolling out cookie doughs.

Preheat the oven to 190°C (375 F).

Roll the dough on a floured surface or between 2 sheets of baking paper 3 mm thickness.dough

Is sticky so add more flour if necessary or refrigerate again.

Sprinkle the top with coarse sugar and bake for 8 to 10 minutes . Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes  before removing to a wire rack too cool completely.

*CHOCOLATE TART CRUST

This dough works well for a tart crust as well. For a tart crust, line the pan then freeze the raw crust

In the pan at least 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 180°C and bake the crust directly from the freezer.

The sides will cook before they have time to fall. You can use this technique for baking empty all tart crusts.
