Best Ever Chocolate Cutout Cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1 egg


190 g all-purpose flour
65 g unsweetened cocoa powder
4 g baking powder
0.8 g salt
170 g butter, softened
250 g white sugar
1 egg

Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in the egg. Gradually stir in the sifted ingredients to form a soft dough.
Divide dough into 2 pieces, flatten and wrap in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch in thickness.
Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.
Dough is sticky so be sure to add more flour to the rolling surface as needed.
Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
