Genie’s Dreamy Cocoa No 3 Rollout Cookies

3 cups AP flour 

2/3 dry cup (2 oz by weight) Genie's Dream Cocoa No 3 (SIFTED)

1/4 tsp baking powder (don’t leave this out, these cookies hold their shape with it in)

 Whisk the above ingredients in a bowl and set aside

1 cup salted butter (semi-softened)

1 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp Genie's Dream Clearly Not Vanilla flavoring

  • Partially cream your butter before you add in the sugar, then finish creaming and add in the eggs & Clearly Not Vanilla.
  • Gradually add in the flour, baking powder & cocoa mixture until a soft dough forms that doesn’t stick to your fingers. (At first it may look a little crumbly but it will come together nicely).
  • Roll dough 1/4” thick between 2 sheets of parchment. (I put my parchment on a genie UltiMat on my counter to keep it from slipping).
  • Chill sheets of dough for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • Cut cookies into desired shapes and bake on a silicone mat or parchment lined baking sheet for approx 7-10 minutes. For reference, I bake a 2.5” round for 7 minutes. (i.e. a 1” cookie baked for about 5 1/2 minutes).
  • The center will appear a bit shiny, but you do not want to over bake or they will be dry.
  • After the cookies are slightly cooled transfer to a wire rack.
