Ingredients

  • 1

    cup butter

  • 1/4

    cup shortening

  • 1 1/2

    cups granulated sugar

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 3/4

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 2/3

    cup cocoa

  • 3 or 3 1/2

    cups flour **

Directions

Cream butter, shortening and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Add baking powder and salt and mix again. Stir in the cocoa until well blended. Add flour 1 cup at a time. **IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE COOKIES RIGHT AWAY, ADD 3 1/2 cups flour. If you are going to "chill" the dough, or just wait for another day to make your cookies, STOP AT 3 cups. It will be totally soft and look all wrong, but the dough will become the correct consistency with the chilling. Roll out on lightly floured surface. Bake at 375 F for 6 1/2 minutes. The cookies do not expand, but retain their pre-baked shape. I made them heart shaped, frosted with chocolate ganache, gave them away and received rave reviews!! (Roll the cookies about 3/16" to 3/8" thick.)
