Glitter Cookies Dance All Night

Here is a cookie recipe in the glittering spirit of Club Sandwich Glitter Animals! Also known as Disco Cookies if you are listening to house music while you make them.

  • 280 g flour
  • 85 g cocoa powder
  • 5 g baking powder
  • 2 g salt
  • 170 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 10 ml vanilla extract
  • sanding sugar for rolling

Preheat your oven to 375°F/190°C, glitter lovers.
Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in medium bowl.
In another bowl, preferably a mixing bowl attached to an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla to combine thoroughly.
Mixing on low, gradually add the flour mixture until dough comes together completely.

Shape dough into balls about 1 1/2 inches around and roll in sanding sugar to create a fabulous disco coating. Press the bottom of a flat glass or bowl onto the cookie dough balls to flatten, as these cookies will not spread a great deal. Alternately, you could roll out this dough and use cookie cutters, perhaps in the shape of disco balls, dollar signs, or your favourite Glitter Animal!

Set them on a baking pan prepared with parchment paper about 1 1/2 inches inches apart and bake 6-8 minutes. You will not see them get golden because they are dark chocolate but you will know they are done when they are no longer soft to the touch. They will harden more out of the oven, cooled for a minute on a rack.
These babies will party in an air-tight container for up to one week if you let them.
