Ingredients
  Plain flour 250 Gram
  Cocoa powder 25 Gram
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Unsalted butter 200 Gram, chilled
  Icing sugar 100 Gram
  Egg yolks 2
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and salt into a food processor, add the butter and process until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and pulse briefly, then add the egg yolks and vanilla and process until the mixture just starts to come together. Transfer the dough to a work surface and shape into a disc. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for 30 minutes.
2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 5 mm (1/4 inch) thick.
3. Use a 7 cm (3 inch) cookie cutter to stamp out rounds and put them on 3 large, lightly oiled baking sheets. Bake in a preheated oven, 200°C (400°F), Gas Mark 6, for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden around the edges. Leave to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
