Calories 140 kcal


  • cups flour
  • cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cups vegetable shortening
  • cups sugar
  • eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 375℉.
  • Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.  Set aside.
  • Put shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attached.  Mix on medium speed until well combined and light in color.  
  • Turn the mixer speed to low and add flour mixture, ½ cup at a time, until it’s all incorporated into the shortening mixture.
  • Place cookie dough onto a sheet of parchment paper and roll to ¼“ thickness.  Use a cookie cutter to cut into individual figures. Peel cookie dough away from shaped cookies.  Flip the parchment paper over onto a greased cookie sheet and gently peel cookies off and onto the cookie sheet.
  • Roll out the remaining dough on the parchment paper and cut with cookie cutters.  Continue until all the dough is used.
  • Bake cookies for 7-9 minutes or until there are no wet spots on top of them.  Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes and remove to a cooling rack.
  • Decorate with powdered sugar, glaze or frosting, if desired.
  • Hack:  Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 10 days or tightly wrapped and frozen for up to 6 months.
  • Hack: Unbaked dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or tightly wrapped and frozen for up to 6 months.

  1. Cynthia, these chocolate chip cookies look really delicious and easy to make!
    I love them with melted chocolate or sugar icing as a decoration instead of icing sugar, I would see them well wet with a little white chocolate, as a good sweet tooth that I am!

    In my house, they would not be able to last for 10 days even if I made enough of it to feed an army!

    ps Lily-Rose is adorable!

    1. Thank you for your kind comments.  Lily-Rose loves to do these videos as does her cousin Khloe-Rose.  (Rose is a traditional second given name in our family).  The two of them together are quite the circus as they are peas in a pod!

      I would love to be able to decorate these cookies but, unfortunately, I don’t have the patience or the artistic ability.  Thus…powdered sugar 😉

  2. Seeing that Christmas is next weekend, I will be sure to surprise everyone with these cookies. I am sure that they will be all shocked as I am not known to be in the kitchen haha. I hope it comes out amazing. I will be sure to come back and give you feedback on how it went 

    1. Merry Christmas to you and yours!  I’m sure your family will be pleased and surprised by your newfound culinary skills (“Who knew he could BAKE?”).  Enjoy the time your time together!
