When I saw this recipe in a book a friend had gifted me years ago. Really, my friend gave me a cookie recipe book years ago and I hadn’t baked not even one recipe from it until this cookie series. Can you relate to that? Do you own recipe books and haven’t even made one recipe from it? I have!

This next cookie is super easy to make and I happened to have all the ingredients in the panty too!


Have you ever had a midnight craving for something sweet and wish it was chocolate? I have; many, many times. This Midnight Cookies are just the perfect midnight snack and super delicious. Not just delicious, but super delicious.


Midnight Cookies


1 cup All Purpose Flour

1/3 cup Unsweetened Cocoa

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

9 tablespoon Butter

1 cup Sugar

1 Egg

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift flour, cocoa and baking soda on a medium bowl and set aside.

Place the butter and sugar in a mixer and beat together until light and fluffy.

Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well mixed.

Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon scoop dough on baking sheet. Space them about 1 1/2 inch apart to give them room to spread while baking.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until set.

Let cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet (about 3-5 minutes).

Then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 25 cookies (depending on the size of the dough you use per cookie).
