  • 270g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 120g icing sugar
  • 150g butter
  • 2 eggs

For decoration

  • melted chocolate or piping icing, sugar pearls, sprinkles


  • STEP 1

    Mix the flour, cocoa, icing sugar and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Rub in the butter and then mix in eggs. Knead quickly with your hands to a smooth dough. Wrap in foil, press into a flat disc and chill for 30 minutes.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Line a couple of baking sheets with baking parchment. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured worksurface to about 3mm thin. Cut out shapes from the dough. Put the biscuits on the baking sheets – it’s best to put similarly sized cookies together. Bake for 7-10 minutes, depending on the size of the biscuits.

  • STEP 3

    Knead the off-cuts of the dough together and chill again for 15 minutes. Roll, cut and bake as before. Cool completely.

  • STEP 4

    When cooled, the cookies can be decorated with chocolate or icing and sugar pearls and sprinkles.
