Brownie Cookies

Yummy cocoa cookies are really not too bad for you - are soft and brownie-like... and for fun, you can add chunks of candy (This is a great way to use up leftover Halloween candy! I've made these with M&Ms, Snickers, and Butterfinger).

1 c all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 tbsp butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour & baking soda in a medium bowl. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, cocoa, egg and vanilla until well blended. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Drop heaping teaspoonsful of dough 1.5 inches apart onto a cookie sheet lightly greased with cooking spray. Bake 12 minutes, then cool for 4 minutes before removing cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

As a note: I've never frozen these cookies. They have never lasted that long ;)
