Cream sugar and butter together with the salt
Add vanilla and the egg
Add baking powder and unsweetened cocoa powder and mix. Add flour a 1/2 cup at a time and mix in.
Divide in half and wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. (I noticed I didn't have plastic wrap at this stage so had to use a plastic bag cut in half ha!)
Now roll into 1 in balls and press with palm to make round cookies without cutter. If using cutters, get em out and make these cookies cute!
Place on baking sheet and bake @ 350 degrees for 7-9 min
Tada!! Chocolate sugar cookies! Now go eat.
