Add flour, cocoa, and salt. Beat at medium-low speed until dough comes together, about 2 to 3 mins. 2. On a floured board, roll dough out about ¼ inch thick.
With a lightly floured 2-inch star cookie cutter (or other desired shape), cut dough into cookies. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased or foil-lined cookie sheets. Refrigerate 1 hour it time allows. 3.
Preheat oven to 250 F. Bake cookies 45 mins, or until firm. Let cookies cool on pans 5 mins, then remove to racks to cool completely.
NOTE: The low cooking temperature is critical to success with these cookies.
