Similar to French shortbread cookies called sabl?s, these treats have a slightly sandy texture and rich flavour. They may crumble a bit when sliced – just pinch the bits together.

Ingredients

  • 9 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 oz good-quality bittersweet chocolate cut in small chunks

Method

In bowl, beat butter with sugar; stir in vanilla. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions. Stir in chocolate to make crumbly dough.

On plastic wrap, form dough into 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) diameter log; wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 1-1/2 hours.

Using sharp knife, slice log into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick rounds. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets.

Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 325?F (160?C) oven until edges are dry but centre is still a bit moist, about 12 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack for 5 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 1 month.)
