1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
add 1 egg (again used a fork)
Separate bowl, mix these together
2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Then mix the dry into the butter mix.
It will be somewhat crumbly.
Divide in half.
Put half in the fridge in covered bowl.
To the remaining half, add in
3 tbsp unsweetened cocooa
2 tbsp miniature chocolate chips. We didn't have miniature ones so we put our regular sized ones into a chopper and diced them up tiny.
2 tbsp milk.
Put covered into the fridge for about 15 minutes.
Now the fun part
Roll out whichever colour you like. If you need to add some water to the mix to make it workable do that. All I would do is dip my fingers in water, grab some dough and knead it in my hands. Doesn't take much to make it less crumbly.
Roll it to about 1/4 inch. use the large cookie cutter. Then use the smaller cutter inside.
Transfer to cookie sheet. Do a bunch of them. Set the smaller pieces aside for now.
THEN take the other colour, do the same thing BUT take the smaller pieces and put them inside the previously cut big pieces.
Place on cookie sheet, cook for about 12 minutes in 375 oven.
The lad thought this part of was fun. :)
I think it'd be neat to do this as green and red cookies but I don't know how to do that so I didn't. :)
