This is the one I always use...

brownie roll-out cookies
adapted from smitten kitchen

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 rounded tsp instant espresso powder

1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Whisk dry flour, salt and baking powder in bowl and set aside.
2. Cream butter and sugar together for 1 minute. Gradually mix in eggs, vanilla, espresso powder and cocoa in mixer. Slowly add flour mixture, and mix until smooth.
3. Wrap in plastic and chill for at least one hour.
4. Roll out cookie dough on floured counter. Cut into desired shapes, brushing extra deposits of flour off the top. (It does disappear once baked)
5. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 8 to 11 minutes (I baked mine 8 minutes) until the edges are firm and the centers are slightly soft and puffed.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

They are pretty crunchy if you over bake!
