1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup buttermilk powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
2-3 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp red gel paste
1 egg

Equipment Needed:

Electric mixer
Mixing bowl
Parchment paper

Instructions:

1. Using the mixer, cream together butter and the confectioner’s sugar.
2. Add in the egg, vanilla, red gel paste, milk and then mix well. Set aside.
3. Mix the flour, cocoa, buttermilk powder, baking powder and salt together. Sift them before adding to the wet ingredients.
4. Add the wet and dry ingredients together to make the dough. Add another tablespoon of milk if the dough is a little dry after adding all the flour mixture.
5. As the dough is forming, add in the apple cider vinegar. Bear in mind that the dough should be soft but not sticky.
6. After the dough has formed to the right consistency, set it aside for five to ten minutes. 7. Prepare the parchment paper and roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Dust lightly with flour as needed. Cut the cookies using a cookie cutter into the desired shapes and place into the baking sheet.
8. Bake the cookies at 400 degrees for around six to seven minutes. The cookies are already done when the cookie tips are smooth and no longer shiny.
