Chocolate Cabernet Cookies

Obligatory wine and chocolate for Valentine’s Day.

But this time, they come in one package. One neat, gooey package.

Chocolate and wine are meant for each other. I think they’re in love.

Chocolate Cabernet Cookies

Only slightly adapted from Simply Scratch

1 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar, packed down

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup cabernet sauvignon

10 ounces chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder in a bowl and stir with a whisk. Set aside. In a larger separate bowl, cream together the butter and both sugars. Be patient! Add the egg, vanilla, and wine. Slowly add the reserved flour mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Bake on greased cookie sheets for about 10 minutes.
