1/16 fluid ounce Vanilla Extract
2 1/2 ounces almond meal
1 3/8 pounds all-purpose flour
2 ounces cocoa powder
1. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375°F. Sift together the four and cocoa powder into a medium bowl and set aside.
2. Place the butter in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on low speed for 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly creamed. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the powdered sugar and salt; mix for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
