Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Most people love frosted sugar cookies, right?  Well, this chocoholic believes if you add chocolate they can only get better!  So, here is my favorite rolled sugar cookie recipe with a twist.

Chocolate Sugar Cookies:
1¾ cups flour
1/4 cup Special Dark Cocoa
1½ tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
6 Tbl butter, softened
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbl milk
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 375°.  Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt, set aside.  Cream butter, shortening, and sugar with electric mixer.  Mix in egg, milk, and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Cover and chill at least 3 hours.  Working with 1/2 dough at a time, on lightly floured surface roll to 1/4″ thickness.  Cut desired shapes, place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 8 minutes or until edges barely start to turn golden.  Frost with buttercream frosting.  Makes 36 to 48 cookies, depending on size.

Buttercream Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2½ cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 T milk (half & half or cream even better)

Whip all ingredients together with electric mixer to creamy spreading consistency.  Add food coloring and sprinkles if desired.
