- 1 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups all purpose flour, unsifted
- 3/4 cup Hershey's Cocoa Powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar, set aside to roll it in
Preheat oven to 350º F. Cream butter and 2 cups of sugar in a large mixing bowl (leave remaining 1/4 cup of sugar to roll dough in). Add eggs and vanilla and blend well.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Blend into creamed mixture.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, roll dough into balls, then roll in the 1/4 cup of sugar set aside. Then drop mixture onto uncreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-9 minutes. They will puff up slightly during baking and flatten upon cooling. Cool on cookie sheet until set, about one minute, then move to wire rack to cool completely.
