How to Make It

Step 1    

In a food processor, pulse the flour with both sugars and the cornmeal, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. Add the butter and vanilla; pulse until the mixture resembles moist sand. Add the melted chocolate and pulse just until the dough comes together. Pat the dough into 2 disks, wrap in plastic and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.

Step 2    

Preheat the oven to 325°. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll out each dough disk 1/4 inch thick between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Using a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter, stamp out cookies as close together as possible. Transfer the rounds to the prepared baking sheets 1 inch apart. Gather and reroll the scraps and stamp out more cookies.

Step 3    

Bake the cookies for about 18 minutes, until the tops are firm. Let cool completely on the baking sheets before serving.
