  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until pale and creamy. Sift in the flour and cocoa powder, and beat until the mixture comes together to form a dough. You may need to bring it together with your hands at the end.
  2. Roll the dough into 16 balls, each about the size of a walnut, and place on the baking sheets. Press the middle of each one with your thumb to flatten it, or use a fork, which will decorate it at the same time. Bake for 20 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Drizzle over the melted chocolate (if using), and allow to set before serving.
  • Buy good-quality cocoa powder and chocolate (if using)-it will make all the difference.
