The dark brown colour of these cookies is a nice contrast to the bright icing.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt ; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions to make smooth dough. Divide in half and flatten into discs; wrap each and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

On floured surface, roll out each disc to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Using cutter or template, cut out shapes, rerolling scraps and chilling dough before cutting again. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined pans. Freeze for 15 minutes or refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.

Bake in 350 °F (180°C) oven until edges begin to darken, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 1 month.)
