      Delish! My new favorite. I made mine with crisco rather than butter. When they cooled they were firm on the outside and soft of the inside just like I like them. I love that they are not too sweet. I made them plain, but you could certainly play with these be adding all sorts of stuff.

      These were pretty good for such a simple recipe. I say simple but it's easy to goof these up. When done right they are thin cookies that are slightly crisp on the outside and soft and almost gooey in the middle. I cooked mine for 10 minutes but my oven's bottom element isn't exposed so you may want to vary the time depending on your oven.

      A few tips for baking these cookies:

      1. Sift the ingredients. The brown sugar with the granulated sugar and salt and the flour with the cocoa powder and baking soda.
      2. Cream the butter with the sugars well before mixing in the egg.
      3. Make sure you don't make them too big, about half the size of a golfball, and leave plenty of room between them (about 2 inches). These cookies spread out quite a bit and are thin when done right.
      4. Don't overbake them. Remember, if the cookies look done when you take them out of the oven then it means that you have probably burned them. Fan them for about 30 seconds and then try to move them to the cooling rack quickly. You may want to fan them a little more if it's too hard to transfer them cleanly.

      I seem to always have success with recipes from the Hershey company. These cookies were also successful. I had a few ounces of leftover semi sweet chocolate chips so I added those to the batter. These are a very good tasting chocolate cookie.
