Directions

Step 1

Beat the butter and icing sugar until smooth, then add the egg yolks all at once and beat until well combined.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch and salt. Add this to the butter mixture and stir until evenly combined. Shape the dough into a log about 2 inches in diameter, wrap and chill until ready to use.

Step 3

For icebox cookies, preheat oven to 325 F. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

Step 4

Cut the dough into slices about 1/8-inch thick and arrange them on the prepared baking trays. Bake for about 12 minutes, until they are no longer shiny. Once cooled, dust the cookies with icing sugar.

Step 5

The cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
