Prep Time 10 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp red food coloring.


  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, salt, baking powder, cocoa powder and set aside.
    In a mixer blend butter and sugar until blended well. Add eggs one at a time, then vanilla and red food coloring. Slowly add flour mixture and mix on low until incorporated, do not over beat.
    Place finished dough on a piece of parchment paper and wrap well, store in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before baking.
    Once chilled, roll dough out onto a floured work surface to 1/2 thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut circles out and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Cook at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set.
    Meanwhile, continue to cut out the rest of the circles. You can place them on a plate and store them in the refrigerator until you are ready to put them in the oven. Once cookies are done let cool completely on a cooling rack before frosting.
