Soft Chocolate Cookies2 sticks butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well again.
Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture a little at a time. If you have time, let the dough chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or so before baking; the dough won't be so messy.
Form a rounded spoonful of dough into a ball and place on a cookie pan that has been lined with a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes.
Cool for several minutes right on the cookie sheet before transferring the cookies to a paper lined counter to completely cool.
