Salted Brownie Cookies
Makes 2 dozen, 1 inch cookies

Adapted from Smitten Kitchen

1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa
sprinkles and coarse salt for sprinkling

In a small bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. In a larger bowl combine the butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and cocoa until smooth. Add the flour and beat until combined. Gather the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic, and chill for at least 30 minutes.

When you are ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick, stamp out cookies. Salt and sprinkle to your liking. Bake the cookies until slightly puffed (about 8-10 minutes). Cool on a wire rack.
