For those times when you just need to have some chocolate and you can’t find it hidden in you house, that’s when you go to this simple chocolate cookie recipe. They hit the spot, every time.
Last week everything came to a head. I had papers everywhere that needed to be dealt with. It was crazy around here. And with it all, I just need some good comfort foods.

Cream together the butter and egg, add in the sugar. Add in salt, vanilla and cocoa. Then add in flour. No liquids. No baking soda or baking powder.

Scoop onto either a greased cookie sheet, or a silicone mat.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350. They will be really soft, they’ll look basically no different but for the very slight toasted look. They will be lightly golden on the bottom. They will firm up as they cool down.
Enjoy with a glass of milk, a cup of tea or coffee, or a glass of wine, or just sit down with a big ol’ plate of cookies and get your fill of them.
