  • Summary

    The dusting of cocoa on these little cookies, much like that on a chocolate truffle, may seem to promise a similar velvety interior, but the illusion is fleeting. One bite reveals the unmistakable crumbly texture of shortbread.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, plus more for dusting
    • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)
