Yield:
about 90 cookies
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves (optional)
  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Sanding sugar, for decorating
Directions
  • Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 325 degrees F. Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and cloves in a medium bowl. Beat the butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until just combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low; beat in the flour mixture until just incorporated.

  • Fill a cookie press with the dough according to the manufacturer's instructions. Press cookies about 1 inch apart onto 2 baking sheets. Decorate with sanding sugar.

  • Bake, switching the pans halfway through, until the cookies are set, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool 3 minutes on the baking sheets, then loosen with a thin spatula and let cool completely on the baking sheet.
