This recipe came from one of my daughters grade school friends in West Virginia. I made them for the girls and for fun when we wanted something chocolate. When I serve these, they are a big hit.
1 1/4 cup butter softened
2 cups sugar
2 t vanilla
2 cups unsifted AP flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 cup finely chopped nuts, optional
Cream butter and sugar in large bowl. add eggs and vanilla, blend well. combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt, blend into cream mixture. Stir in nuts if desired.
drop by teaspoonfuls in ungreased cookies sheet. bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Do not over bake, cookies will be soft. They will puff during baking and flatten upon cooling. Cool on cookie sheet until set- about one minute. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 4 1/2 dozen. Enjoy!
