Although Swig Sugar Cookies are one of our favorites at the all-popular Swig cookie and soda drive through, my new favorite is their Dirt Ball cookie.  Of course, I had to give one a try with that crazy name, and it was  this yummy, sugary, chocolate delight.  It reminded me of a Texas Sheet Cake in cookie form and I decided to try making a copy cat recipe. The magic of Swig cookies is that they start with an extra thick cookie, slightly underbaked and then top them with yummy frosting.  They like to store them cold and top them with fresh icing, but I think they are just as good at room temperature, maybe better.   Here they are, just waiting for their frosting to finish them off. I guess you could eat them this way, but I am the kind of girl that believes frosting makes everything better. Swig Dirt Ball Cookie Recipe – Copycat 2 C. sugar 1 C. butter, softened 1 egg 1 tsp. vanilla 1/3 C. cocoa powder, sifted to remove lumps 1/4 tsp. salt 2 1/4 C. flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. baking powder Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar,  then add the egg and vanilla, and blend together. Be sure to sift the cocoa powder so that it blends in smoothly.  Add the sifted cocoa to the salt, flour, soda and baking powder. Add the flour mix to the sugar mix and blend until mixed together with the paddle of your mixer.  It will be a pretty dry mixture. Form the dough into golf ball size patties.  Swig cookies are nice and big.  Place the balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place some sugar in a small bowl, and dip the bottom of a glass into the sugar and press the cookie down.   Bake 9-10 minutes or until tops are just dry.  Let cool  on pan for a few minutes so that you can move them to a cooling rack without breaking them. When cool, frost.  Makes about 18 large cookies. Frosting 2 C. powdered sugar 1/4 C. cocoa powder, sifted 1/4 C. butter, melted 1/4 C. milk In mixing bowl, place all of the ingredients and whip together, using the whisk. These are our new favorite chocolate cookies, whether we stop in at Swig, or whip up a batch at home. Posting this with Metamorphosis Monday
