Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350F

Step 2

Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

Step 3

Add the flour, baking powder, cocoa and sugar to food processor and process to combine.

Step 4

Add the cold butter and process again for another 20 – 30 seconds until it is finely chopped through the flour mixture.

Step 5

Add the egg, vanilla and half of the milk. Process again for about 30-40 seconds until well combined and the dough starts forming large clumps.

Step 6

If it's not coming together, add the rest of the milk and process again.

Step 7

Turn out the dough onto a clean surface and pull together with your hands, kneading lightly until it starts to stay together, this should only take a minute or so.

Step 8

Lay out a long sheet of baking paper and place the dough in the centre of one half of it. Fold the other half over the top and use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to about 4-5mm thick. Every so often peel the paper away and smooth out to prevent any creases in the paper causing indentations in the cookies. Flip over and repeat on the bottom

Step 9

Place in the fridge for 30 min before cutting out cookies

Step 10

Use a 2 inch circle cutter to cut as many cookies as you can.

Step 11

Carefully transfer them to a baking tray about 1 inch apart.

Step 12

Re-roll the dough and repeat until it has all been used.

Step 13

Bake in the oven for 6 minutes, turn the trays, bake for another 6 minutes.

Step 14

Transfer them to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
