Ingredients:

  • 3 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated Sugar
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Red Food Colour
  • 1 cup powdered Sugar or Icing Sugar

Directions:

  1. In a bowl mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt and set aside.
  2. Use a stand mixer or hand mixer to beat together butter, cream cheese and sugar in another bowl till light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at time, beating till combined. Add milk, vanilla extract, lemon juice and red food color and mix.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat on very low speed till just combined. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  5. Pre-heat oven to 350F
  6. Fill a plate or wide bowl with powdered sugar or icing sugar.
  7. Use a small ice cream scooper to scoop out balls of dough the size of limes and roll them with your hands in the powdered sugar till they are covered. Don’t worry if there is extra sugar in a few places. Work quickly because the dough soaks in sugar quite quickly.
  8. Place them on a silicon mat lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-13 minutes. Let them cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
