These are very soft and fluffy cookies. My husband says they are like little chocolate cakes.
You can frost them, but I never do. I will include the frosting recipe if you do want to frost them.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cookie sheets, ungreased
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup margarine or butter
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1-3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix sugar, margarine, water, vanilla, egg, and cocoa powder. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.
Using a teaspoon or cookie scoop, drop dough onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until almost no indentation remains when you touch a cookie. Remove from cookie sheet right away and let cool before frosting, if you are doing so.
