Everyone who tastes this comments it's a different way to dress up an old-time favorite. You can serve the cookies as appetizers or as a light dessert. We live in the country on an acreage. I enjoy all types of crafts, especially needlework and sewing. And, ever since I was 12, I've also liked cooking!
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/3 cup baking cocoa
- Dash salt
- In a large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy. Combine the remaining ingredients; gradually beat into the butter. Chill for 1 hour.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 300° for 20 minutes or until set. Yield: about 4 dozen.

"My cookies looked exactly like the picture, but they crumbled very easily. Also, they had very little chocolate flavor, and I got maybe 2.5 dozen cookies out of this recipe."
