Roll-Out Chocolate Cookies

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup black cocoa powder
2 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon espresso powder (optional)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Place the flour, black cocoa, Dutch cocoa, espresso powder if using, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk to combine; set aside.

Place the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (Alternatively, use an electric hand mixer and large bowl.) Beat on medium speed until very light in color and fluffy in texture. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to incorporate.

On low speed, gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until just combined. Remove from the mixer and knead a few times to bring the dough together completely. It should be firm but pliable (a little stiffer than Play-Doh).
