  • Combine flour, hot-cocoa powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat the butter and sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture and mix until just combined, scraping down sides of bowl.

  • Spread the dough evenly in the prepared pan. Bake until firm to the touch, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Lift foil and shortbread cookie from pan and place it on a cutting board. Slice in half lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise into 3/4-inch pieces. After cookies have cooled, dot them with frosting. Let dry before storing.
