Servings: 36
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

1  cup  Brown sugar
1/2  cup  Butter or margarine
1    Egg
1/2  cup  Cocoa
1 1/2  cups  Flour
1/2  teaspoon  Baking soda
1/2  cup  Milk
1  teaspoon  Vanilla
1/2  cup  Chopped walnuts

1  cup  Confectioner's sugar
2  tablespoons  Cocoa
1/2  teaspoon  Vanilla
2  tablespoons  Butter

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar and butter; mix well. Beat egg and add to creamed mixture; mix well. Add cocoa and mix.

3. In a separate bowl, measure flour and baking soda. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk to egg and cocoa mixture. Stir in vanilla and chopped nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Remove to wire racks and let cool.

4. While cookies are baking, make icing by combining all ingredients. Thin with a little milk if icing is too thick.

5. When cookies have cooled, frost with chocolate icing.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, was as delectable as these cookies that my grandmother taunted us with.
