Prep time:
Baking time:
Makes: approximately 54
Freezing: excellent (with chocolate)


2 cups (500 mL) unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ cups (375 mL) packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) pure vanilla extract
2 ¾ cups (675 mL) Five Roses® All Purpose Flour
¾ cup (175 mL) unsweetened cocoa powder
Dipping Chocolate
1 ½ cups (375 mL) Chipits® Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 325º F (160º C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cookies: Cream butter, sugar and vanilla, 1 to 2 minutes. Add flour, cocoa powder and mix on low speed, scraping the bowl frequently, until dough comes together.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece to a ¼” (5 mm) thickness. Using a 2” (5 cm) cookie cutter, cut out shapes as close to one another as possible. Gather up scraps and repeat with remaining dough. Arrange cookies on prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven 18-20 minutes. Cool on racks 30 minutes before dipping cookies in chocolate.
  5. Dipping: Set a sheet of parchment or waxed paper on work surface. Pour melted chocolate into a 2 cup (500 mL) measuring cup. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate, shaking off excess chocolate into cup. Set dipped cookies on parchment paper to harden. If pressed for time, place cookies in refrigerator to set chocolate faster.
