So here is what you’ll need:
1 c. butter
1 c. plus 2 tbsp of white sugar
1 tsp of Vanilla
2 c. plus 1 tbsp of flour
Slightly less than 1 full cup of cocoa powder (it say’s scant which means not quite one cup)
A pinch of salt
Okay so I doubled my recipe I am making it for something so I needed a lot…but here is what you do.
Take a large mixing bowl (btw if anyone wants to get me a kitchen aid mixer a stand one I’d love you forever I like my kitchen aid hand mixer but it’s not the same…) add your sugar and butter together and mix until just together – not creaming. Add egg and Vanilla Extract – I am almost out of my homemade this makes me sad. Mix those two things on a low speed until combined.
In a different bowl add together the flour, salt, and cocoa and whisk it together. This part is fun and the reason I wish I had a standing mixer- add the flour and crap to it and continue to mix until your dough is sticking to your beaters…yeah tons of fun anyway it’s a super thick batter, so after that place it into a plastic bag and toss it in the fridge to chill. Then pull it out and like a sugar cookie, roll it to a ¼ - ½ inch thick and then cut out some shapes bake at 350 for 15 – 20 minutes and cool then decorate. Yes that is it! Enjoy!!
