1 cup flour
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs, beaten lightly
1 tsp. vanilla
4 tbsp. powdered sugar, plus additional for dusting hands
In a bowl (preferably metal) stir together all of the dry ingredients. Add butter and mix well, using an electric mixer. Add egg and vanilla and mix until well blended.
Spread dough in a thin layer in bowl and freeze 10 minutes, or until firm.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place powdered sugar in a small bowl and dust hands with additional. Roll each piece of dough into a small ball (approximately 1") and then into the sugar. Arrange balls 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are just set. Cool cookies on racks.
So good... with a brownie-like flavor and texture. Grab yourself a glass of milk and enjoy!
