Because I love chocolate.
Because it's been a crazy week.
Because these are delicious and easy and it's the weekend and there's no reason not to make them.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy, then add the egg and mix well. Stir in the dry ingredients until a smooth dough forms, then freeze the dough for about 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, dredge teaspoon-fuls of dough balls in confectioner's sugar and then place them on the baking sheet. Bake just until the tops rise and crack, 5-8 minutes. Let cool slightly, then gobble them up or let them cool completely and store airtight up to 3 days :)
