These yummy cookies are really brownies in disguise...
1 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsp bourbon vanilla (found at GrammasCutters.com)
Combine in separate bowl...
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup fine cocoa
Add mixtures together until well mixed and then split into 4 pieces. Refrigerate for 1 hour (up to 24 hours). Work piece by piece (leave dough in refrigerator when not using - the colder the better). Roll to 1/4" thickness (we suggest using Even Dough Bands found at GrammasCutters.com) and use parchment paper above and below dough (this reduces the need for flour and leaves your cookies a rich chocolate color). Cut out cookies with Aunt Chick's Cutters or silhouette cookie cutters. If using Aunt Chick's Cookie Cutters it does help to refrigerate cookies before baking for 1 hour (if you have the time).
Bake at 400 degrees for 3-5min depending on the size of your cookies. Cool on a wire cooling rack. Once cooled decorate with icing if desired.
