The great chocolate flavor of these cookies reminds me of eating the sugar topped Archway cookies I enjoyed a as kid.
I have always been a HUGE chocolate fan,
so making a chocolate sugar cookie with chocolate icing just had to be on the top of my must-make list.
And these recipes are true winners. 
I made the recipes many times, adjusting items to get them just right.
Glaze icing, whether it’s vanilla, chocolate, or another flavor or color, the icing will dry fully in about 8 hours, so the cookies can be stacked, wrapped and the icing won’t mess up.
Glaze icing has a little more sheen to it than royal icing (click for that recipe), and it tastes way better in my opinion. But sometimes royal icing is the way to go.

The bats are chocolate cookies with chocolate icing. I give you instructions if you want vanilla cookies like the baseballs are made with.
These chocolate sugar cookies are not too overly sweet, they are so delicious with the sugary frosting and these cookies and frosting are a double whammy…
they are chocolate cookies with chocolate glaze icing and you can use any cookie cutter you prefer.
You can use regular cocoa or dark or dutch process cocoa.
I roll and cut my cookies to 1/4″ thick.
If you don’t want to add more flour to the cookie dough, roll it out in between wax paper. This will help the cookie dough to stay moist and not overly dry, which will result in cookies that don’t crack.
This recipe is pretty forgiving, if you like sweeter cookies, add a little more sugar, if you want them to be flavored differently, add some almond extract, mint extract, coconut extract or even orange, chocolate and orange go well together.
Same goes for the icing, adding some additional extracts into the icing will help you create a delicious icing to top your cookies off with.

    1. Yes, the icing does dry and the cookies can be stacked. I allow at least 8 hours of drying time before wrapping/stacking. The icing is not as hard as royal icing, it doesn’t “break” off or crack. You can also freeze cookie with the glaze icing and they defrost well too. I have ea few other posts on glaze icing
