EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Cocoa is notoriously lumpy. Before adding the dry ingredients to the dough, whisk or sift them together. Shape pretzels with just-mixed, room-temperature dough. Not enough time? The dough may be refrigerated for a later use, but let it warm to room temperature before handling.

Let the chocolate icing set completely before layering the cookies between waxed paper in an airtight container.
