Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Using Dutch-process cocoa powder will give these cookies a rich and dark chocolate flavor. Sugar cookie dough is a stiff and dry dough, so be sure to add the dry ingredients gradually so the dough will form much more easily.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter


Step 1

COMBINE flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in large bowl; set aside.

Step 2

BEAT butter and sugar with electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture and combine.

Step 3

WRAP dough in parchment paper and place in plastic zipper bag; refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Step 4

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with Reynolds® Parchment Paper; set aside.

Step 5

ROLL out dough 1/8-inch thick between 2 lightly floured sheets of parchment paper. CUT dough with 2 inch cookie cutters. PLACE dough on parchment-lined cookie sheets.

Step 6

BAKE 6 to 8 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned on edges. Slide parchment paper with cookies onto cooling rack; cool.

Step 7

DECORATE as desired. Store in airtight containers for up to 5 days.
