Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter and sugar in a large bowl; beat until smooth. Add egg yolk, flour, cocoa, vanilla, baking powder, and salt; mix until well blended and smooth.

  2. Step 2

    Divide dough in half. Roll out one piece between two sheets of parchment paper 1/4 inch thick. Repeat with remaining piece. Stack dough (still between parchment paper) on a baking sheet; freeze 15 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Working with one piece at a time, cut out dough with a 3-inch-high Z-shape cookie cutter, easing out shapes onto parchment-lined baking sheets as you work. Refrigerate shapes until firm, about 15 minutes.

  4. Step 4

    Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until firm, about 12 minutes. Let cool completely on sheets on a wire rack.
