Ingredients

1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room
temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat an oven to 350°F. Grease 2 baking sheets with butter or cooking spray


Put the confectioners sugar into a bowl and set aside.


Mix the ingredients


In another bowl, using a wooden spoon, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside.


In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until creamy, about 3 minutes. Turn off the mixer and scrape down the bowl with the rubber spatula. Add 1 egg and beat on medium speed until blended. Add the other egg and vanilla and beat until blended.


Turn off the mixer and add the flour mixture. Beat on low speed just until blended.


Form the cookies


Using a tablespoon, scoop up a rounded spoonful of dough. Scrape the dough off the spoon into the palm of your other hand. Roll the dough into a ball. Roll the ball in the confectioners sugar until covered. Place the balls on a prepared baking sheet. Repeat, spacing the balls about 2 inches apart.


Bake the cookies


When 1 baking sheet is full, put it in the oven and bake the cookies until they are crackled and puffed, 10 to 12 minutes. Using oven mitts, remove the baking sheet from the oven and set it on a wire rack for 15 minutes.


Using a metal spatula, move the cookies onto the rack and let cool completely. Repeat with the rest of the cookies. Makes about 24 cookies.
