This recipe is from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook. They are absolutely wonderful. I actually use a little less cocoa in the frosting than it calls for, but feel free to adjust according to how chocolaty you like it.

Sue! These are amazing! Absolutely delicious! My neighbor has been ehelping me bake this week, so it's really been cookie chaos! It's been a lot of fun. The frosting is unbelievable! My girlfriend, who's helping me bake, made one batch of these and I made another. But between our hubbys, they were flying off of the cooling racks faster than I could count! I wanted to get a count on them, but no luck! lol Fabulous cookie Sue!! Made for a KK forum event!! 24 Days of Cookies
How could I have almost forgotten to rate these? Very easily, that's how - out of sight (that is, devoured), out of mind! But my relatives and I adored these for a Friday night treat. I used vegan ingredients and the only thing I would add (and it might be just the veganization) is that they need to be flattened on the sheet. The ones I simply dropped took a very long time to bake and didn't spread that well. Second batch, pressed with a fork, came out more nicely. This is a keeper - iced cookies, imagine! Thanks very much for posting!
What a great recipe! I wanted to make brownies, but was looking for something different than your standard brownie recipe. These really did the trick! Thanks for posting!
