This recipe calls for Dutch cocoa, but you could use regular cocoa as well.

What’s the difference between Dutch Cocoa and cocoa?

There are two types of unsweetened cocoa powder: Dutch-processed and natural. Dutch-process cocoa powder starts with cocoa beans that have been washed in an alkaline solution of potassium carbonate. This wash neutralizes their acidity. So, Dutch-process cocoa powder is neutral. Because it is neutral, it does not react with baking soda. It’s often paired with baking powder. Alkalizing cocoa makes it darker in color, mellow in flavor, and dissolves easily into liquids.

To make- preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Whisk and set aside. Using a stand or hand mixer, mix the vegan butter and sugar until creamed. Add egg replacer. Mix together. Stir in vanilla. Pour in the flour mixture a little at a time until completely incorporated.

The next step is to wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 1-2 hours. This is important because it will prevent the cookies from spreading too much when they bake. Once the dough has chilled, roll it into 1 1/2 inch balls. Pour 1/3 cup sugar into a small bowl and roll the dough around until it is covered. Bake for 12 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes and then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
