These cookies are absolutely delicious - soft and buttery.
They make the perfect pairing with a cup of coffee or tea.

5 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 sticks plus 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons confectionery sugar, sifted
Pinch of salt
3 tablespoons lightly beaten egg whites

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Fit a pastry bag with a open sized tip.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
Whisk flour and cocoa powder, set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk butter until light and creamy.
Whisk in sugar and salt.
Add egg white.
Gradually add flour-cocoa and blend well.
Spoon dough into the pastry bag.
Pipe zig-zag shaped cookies, about 2 inches long, 1 inch apart.
Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes - NO MORE!
Transfer cookies to a rack and cool.
