Grandma Lil's Chocolate Drop Cookies

Grandma Lil’s Chocolate Drop Cookies

Makes about 4 dozen



I grew up eating these cookies.  My mom didn’t bake often – but this is one cookie she did make, maybe because they were a favorite of my Dad’s.  His mom made them when he and siblings were growing up.  They were always a favorite of mine too.  Cake-like and tender-I think they are the perfect cookie for any time of day.  Enjoy.





2/3 cup butter, softened

1¼ cup sugar

2 eggs, room temperature

2 ½ cups flour

2 ½ tsp. baking powder

1 scant tsp. salt

6-6½  Tbsp. cocoa

About ½ cup milk (maybe a little less)

1 tsp. vanilla

Chopped nuts if desired



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Cream butter and sugar together.  Add eggs one at a time blending well after each egg.  Mix dry ingredients together.  Add to butter mixture alternately with milk, ending with the flour.  Add vanilla and nuts if using. 



1 Tbsp. butter, melted, 1 Tbsp. cocoa, and 1-2 Tbsp. milk and powdered sugar.  Mix butter, cocoa and 1 Tbsp milk in a small bowl.  Add enough powdered sugar to make of smooth spreading consistency (add 2nd Tbsp of milk if needed).  Using a spoon add a nickel sized amount on top of each cookie and spread using the back of your spoon.
