For 50 small cookies

- 125 ml (1/2 cup) butter, at room temperature
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) icing sugar
- 2 ml (1/2 tsp.) pure vanilla extract
- 5 ml (1 tsp.) water
- 180 ml (3/4 cup) all-purpose flour
- 45 ml (3 tbsp.) cocoa powder
- 15 ml (1 tbsp.) unsalted butter
- A pinch of salt
- 75 ml (1/3 cup) semisweet mini chocolate chips
  1. Place the butter in bowl of electric mixer. Using the paddle attachment, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add the icing sugar in two parts, mixing on low speed until ingredients are combined. Increase the speed of the mixer and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and water, mix until combined.
  2. Sift together the flour, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Add to the creamed mixture on low speed until combined.
  3. When the dough is pulling away from the sides of the bowl add the chocolate chips. Mix on low speed for half a minute.
  4. Roll the dough on a floured surface 1/4" thick and use your favourite small cookie cutter to cut out shapes (between 1-1 1/2" in diameter).
  5. Place cookies 1" apart on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake for 11-12 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight box. Yields approximately 50 small cookies.
