1 1/4 cups softened butter
1 1/2 cups sifted confectioners sugar
Mix together then add:
3 cups sifted flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 Teaspoon salt
Mix until all ingredients are well blended. Don't be afraid to use your hands. Divide into quarters and chill for 3 hours. Pre-heat oven to 350. Roll out to 1/8" thickness between two sheets of waxed paper or on a floured board. Cut into shapes using your favorite Ann Clark cookie cutters. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets and cool on wire racks. Cookies can be frosted or eaten just plain.
