The taste is so good, and you need just a few ingredients, I am pretty sure that you already have them in your kitchen!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 200 gr (7/8 cup) butter
- 270 gr (2 1/2 cups) flour
- 100 gr (7/8 cup) icing sugar
- 20 gr (2.71 tbsp) cocoa powder
- 1 egg white
Now add icing sugar and mix everything with a spoon.
Mix both doughs until they become soft and smooth.
It will be a little hard to do at the beginning, but once butter gets warmer it will be much easier.
Press them a little and wrap them in plastic wrap. Put them in the fridge for at least an hour.
You should flatten them to create two rectangles...as you can see I could not really do that lol. But don't worry if you can't do that either, you will cut them in the next step.
Prepare an egg white and brush it on the white rectangle. You need it to "glue" the 2 rectangles together.
So, put the black rectangle on the white one and flatten a little more.
I used plastic wrap to help myself in all these steps.
Don't throw those parts away! I never want to waste anything...just put them aside now, we'll use them later.
Again, wrap your roll in plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for another hour.
Flatten the dough with a rolling pin and make it about 1cm (0.39 inches) thick.
I made it thinner so my cookies got almost burnt! :( For this reason remember to have the same thickness for all your cookies!
Take your favorite cookie cutters and cut as many cookies as you can.
Bake at 180C (350F) for about 15-18 minutes.
Let them cool and...enjoy them!!!
