  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 oz cocoa butter melted and cooled until it is still warm but not scorching hot
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • In a small bowl, mix flour and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix cocoa butter and sugar.
  • Mix in egg yolks and milk.
  • Gradually mix in dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Roll cookies into quarter-sized balls and place them on ungreased cookie sheets, leaving 3/4" between cookies. If you find that the batter becomes difficult to work with in later batches, periodically mix it at high speed to warm it up.
  • Bake for about 7 minutes. The cookies will still be soft when you remove them from the oven, but will harden as they cool.
