1 Large egg
1 and 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 (1 cup) Sticks Butter softened
1.) Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and cocoa powder in a bowl with a whisk.
2.) In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla until well combined. Add the flour mixture in 2-3 batched to the creamed mixture. Make sure it is mixed well.
3.) Place dough in a large plastic storage bag and flatten slightly with your hand. Seal bag and refrigerate for 2 hours
To make the Cookies:
