A great recipe for young bakers that will be enjoyed by all ages.
|1 2⁄3 c||flour|
|1⁄2 c||unsweetened cocoa powder|
|1 1⁄2 t||baking powder|
|1⁄2 c||unsalted butter|
|1 1⁄4 c||sugar|
|1⁄2 t||vanilla extract|
|1⁄2 c||powdered sugar in a small bowl|
Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease two baking sheets. In a medium bowl, gently whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla, mixing well with each addition. Add the flour mixture and beat gently just until incorporated. Roll dough, a tablespoon at time, into balls, and roll each ball in powdered sugar until covered. Place balls about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until tops puff and crinkle. Cool several minutes on cookie sheets before removing to a cooling rack.
