Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add butter and sugar to bowl of standing mixer. Beat on medium-high speed until very light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl then beat in eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. With mixer speed on low, slowly add the flour mixture, and beat until combined. Chill dough for one hour. 
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.  Roll dough between sheets of parchment paper to 1/4" thickness and cut into desired shapes. If at any point the dough becomes too soft to work with, pop it back in the freezer for 10 minutes.  Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets, leaving 2" space between cookies. Bake 6-8 minutes, until slightly puffed and starting to crackle at edges. Cookies should still be soft and slightly underbaked. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
