Chocolate Pound Cake Cookies

Where have I been? I KNOW, I know what you’re thinking, but I have a good excuse! I’ve been working diligently on getting my own domain name and hosting space, as well as working with the wonderful Jeni at The Blog Maven┬áto get the design for my site perfect. She’s so great! FYI, if you’re looking for a way to spice up your blog or website, take a look at her services. My goodness, running a blog is much more work than you’d think! You’ll be happy to know that during my downtime I have been baking and brushing up on some photography skills. A quick look back through my archives and you’ll notice my photos aren’t the best quality, but I’m learning as I go.

So as you are probably aware, I haven’t posted in over a month, but I’m so excited to share this recipe with you tonight and I hope to be able to bring you a new recipe every week, if not multiple times a week! Excited yet? You better be! So without much further ado, I present to you Chocolate Pound Cake Cookies.

Chocolate Pound Cake Cookies

Prep time 2 hours, 30 minutes
Cook time 12 minutes
Total time 2 hours, 42 minutes
Meal type Dessert


  • 1 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons milk
  • 2 1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


1. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg yolk, vanilla and milk. Beat in the flour, cocoa and salt until well blended. Cover the dough and refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.
2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Press your thumb firmly down on the ball to create an indention. Sprinkle chocolate chips into the indention until full.
3. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, cool 2 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack.


You can fill the indention on the cookies with other things. Get creative! For example, I put a dollop of peanut butter on some of my cookies after they were cooled.


I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as I did! Let me know what you think!

    I LOVE chocolate pound cake! So these look insane to me. If you were to look back at my first pictures, you’d laugh! But we’ve got to start somewhere, right? I think you’re doing great!
