  • 1 1/4 cups butter
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa (for half the dough)



Step 1

Mix butter, sugar and egg. Stir in flour and salt. Divide dough in half.

Stir 1/4 cocoa into HALF the dough. Refrigerate one hour.

On a floured pastry cloth, roll plain dough into a rectangle 16 x 19 inches.

Roll chocolate dough the same size. Place on top. Roll out BOTH doughs until 3/16 inch thick.

Starting at the long edge, roll doughs into a log.

Wrap and chill for one hour or longer.

Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

Slice dough log into 1/8" slices. If dough crumbles while slicing, let it warm a bit.

Place 1" apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake about 8 minutes until set, but not brown.

Remove from sheets immediately and cool on racks.

Makes 24 cookies.
