Chocolate Cookies

The perfect chocolate cookie recipe for roll-out cookies


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

  2. Using a mixer, cream together the butter, shortening and sugar until smooth.

  3. Add the eggs one at a time. Then mix in the vanilla. Continue mixing until well incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  4. Add the baking powder, salt and cocoa powder.

  5. Add flour 1 cup at a time.

  6. Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness and chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

  7. Cut the cookies into the desired shapes and bake at 375 F for 7-10 minutes.



Royal Icing


  • lbs confectioner’s sugar
  • 5 tbsp meringue powder
  • tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup water


  1. Mix the flavoring into half the water.

  2. Using a mixer, combine the meringue powder and powdered sugar.

  3. Slowly add the water and flavoring into the dry ingredients. The icing will then become very thick.

  4. Next add the remaining water and mix on medium speed and whip until thick and fluffy. Stop mixing when the icing forms a soft peak.

  5. You can add more water as needed to reach the desired piping consistency.
