Chocolate Wafer Cookies

For our Thanksgiving dessert, I decided to forgo the pie when I saw a recipe for a pumpkin chocolate trifle. It involved chocolate wafer cookies and wanted to make them from scratch. I asked Hallee the Homemaker how to adapt her Vanilla Wafer Cookie recipe and gave it a try! The first batch did not flatten out, but the second batch I flattened before baking and they came out perfect!

Chocolate Wafer Cookies-adapted from Hallee the Homemaker
1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 325.

Cream together butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg. Add in dry ingredients and mix until well combined.(This is a very thick dough). Scoop out dough using a small ice cream scoop or tsp. Place on baking sheet. Take a glass and dip the bottom into sugar and press onto each dough ball. Repeat for each ball. Place in oven and bake for 10 mins. After 10 mins shut the oven off and leave the cookies in the oven for 30 mins.

*These worked out perfectly and are crisp just like the store bought, but they taste so much better! They were quick and easy to make.
