I will add a picture as soon as we have any last long enough for a photo op!
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
2/3 c. shortening
2/3 c. softened butter
2 tsp. vanilla
3-1/4 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. special dark cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1-1/2 tsp. pinot noir sea salt and maybe a little more for sprinkling, to taste
Mix sugars, shortening, margarine, vanilla and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients. Divide dough into halves, shape each half into a roll about 2 inches in diameter and about 8 inches long. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut rolls into 1/2 inch slices. (They can be cut as thin as 1/4 inch, but adjust cooking time to about 8 minutes.) Place 2-inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. if you like chocolate fairly salty, sprinkle a little bt on top, or reduce the amount in the batch to 1 tsp, and sprinkle some on top. You'll figure out your level of salt that you like. Bake until set, about 11 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets immediately. Makes about 5-1/2 dozen cookies.
