Chocolate Cutout Cookies

20131207-155442.jpg

Finally a cut out cookie I like! This are great and it makes a small batch so after the kids get bored, I’m not stuck cutting out a ton of cookies.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 c flour
3/4 c cocoa
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
1 egg

Whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together.

Cream butter in a stand mixer and add sugar. Beat in egg. Beat in flour mixture. Turn out onto a piece of Saran Wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375. Place parchment or silmats onto a cookie sheet.

Roll out dough, cut into shapes and place on the baking sheet. Bake 8 – 10 minutes.

Cool and ice.

Icing:
1/4 c powdered sugar
1 tsp water
Food coloring

Whisk together and spread over cookies.
