Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    cup good-quality unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 1/2

    cups sugar

  • 1/2

    cup vegetable shortening, substitute 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

  • 1

    large egg

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Put butter and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy. Mix in shortening (or additional butter). Add egg and vanilla; mix until creamy. Reduce speed to low. Gradually add flour mixture, and mix until just combined. Using a 2 1/2-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing about 4 inches apart. Bake until edges are firm, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container up to 2 days.
