How can I make one batch of sugar cookies but halve the dough to make chocolate? I use the dough from Karen's Cookies, which is very similar to the NFSC cookie many use here. Thank you for your help!
I would made two different batches..
if you have a scale then just divide it into two and go from there.
Adding cocoa is adding an extra dry ingredient, so the dough may be too dry. Adding liquid chocolate (melted chocolate) is adding extra liquid so the dough may be too sticky. YOu need to balance whatever you add.
I'd just make two batches. If you have leftover dough that you dont' want to bake (and I'm betting that at this time of year, whatever you bake wouldn't go to waste! ), you can refrigerate or freeze it for later use.
Thanks ya'll! I guess two batches it is!
