Ingredients:

Chocolate Dough
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), softened
  • 2 Tbsp. confectioners sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
Strawberry Dough
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • strawberry extract or flavoring
  • red food coloring (optional)
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (I didn't line mine, I sprayed it with Pam, and they still came out fine).

For the chocolate cookies: place the butter, confectioners sugar and cocoa in a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer set on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Combine the flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

For the strawberry cookies: place the butter and confectioners sugar in a medium bowl. Add 2 drops each of the food coloring and strawberry flavor/extract. Beat with an electric mixer set on medium until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Combine the flour and the baking powder in a small bowl. Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.

Roll both flavors of dough into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Press the balls gently to flatten.

Bake the cookies until set, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

For an extra special treat, dip these cooled cookies in melted white, dark, or milk chocolate. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let stand until the coating is cooled and completely set.
