PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or use a silicone non-stick mat.



SIFT flour, baking cocoa, Ovaltine, coffee granules and salt into large bowl; stir well.



BEAT butter, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Turn mixer to low; gradually beat in flour mixture, scraping down the sides of the bowl if necessary.



ROLL 2 tablespoons of dough between the palms of your hand to form a ball. Place on prepared baking sheet; repeat with remaining dough, spacing two inches apart on baking sheets. Using a dinner fork, press tines into dough.



BAKE for 12 to 15 minutes or until just firm to the touch. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
