Preparation Time

Serves30 sandwiched cookies

1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa If you really like the richness of the cocoa, you can add an additional 2 heaping tablespoons cocoa. (I use Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 egg room temperature

1. Set the 2 racks in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375˚F

2. In a food processor or the bowl of an electric mixer, thoroughly mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder, salt and the sugar. On a low speed or while pulsing, add the butter and then add in the egg. Continue mixing on low until the dough comes together in a mass.

3. Take a rounded teaspoon of batter and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet or a Silpat, approximately two inches apart. With moistened hands, slightly flatten the cookies. I like them very flat because these cookies don't really spread to much.

4. Bake for 8-9 minutes, rotating once for even baking. Cool cookies for 2 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet.

Kate, your pictures are amazing! I'm working on a way to post sections in recipes - so that you can have a section "For the Filling" and one "For the cookie". Should make things easier for you :)
