Brownie Roll-Out Cookies (Smitten Kitchen)

3 cups flour, plus more for counter

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

16 T unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl, and set aside. Beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down bowl. Mix in vanilla. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients. Wrap in plastic, and chill for at least 1 hour.

Roll out the cookie dough on a floured counter. Cut into desired shapes, brushing extra deposits of flour off the top. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 8-11 minutes (the former for 1/8-inch cookies, the latter for 1/4-inch cookies), until the edges are firm and the centers are slightly soft and puffed. Cool on a wire rack.
