  • 2 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour

  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • cup butter-flavored shortening

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 (12 ounce) package miniature semisweet chocolate chips

  • 4 tablespoons milk


  1. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  2. Beat sugar and shortening together using an electric mixer in a mixing bowl. Add eggs 1 at a time while continuing to beat until combined. Beat in vanilla extract followed by cocoa; beat in chocolate chips. Beat in flour mixture and milk, alternating, until combined. Chill dough in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Roll cookie dough as thin as chocolate chips will allow. Cut out cookies using a biscuit cutter and place on a baking sheet.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely, 15 to 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
