So, I guess I'm on a posting spree today, but I promise this is the last one. These are my favorite cookies ever!! (Sorry Mom, I still love your choc. chip too...)

Make them and feel the love.

Cocoa Crackles
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
Powdered sugar (a few spoonfuls)

1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease cookie sheets (if necessary). Combine flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda in medium bowl.
2. Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well blended. Add flour mixture; beat until just blended.
3. Place powdered sugar in a shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar, cover liberally. Place 1-2 inches apart on baking sheets.
4. Bake about 11 minutes or until set and no longer shiny. Cool on cookie sheets, then on wire racks.
5. Enjoy!

(Also try Jessie's Chocolate Snappers if you're feeling ambitious!)

I LOVE those cookies! Good call on making those.
PLEASE vent to me...you can vent anytime...it's nice to vent to someone who understands. They totally screwed us too and gave us like $25 after cleaning for hours, and when they inspected they went on and on about how great it looked and then charged us for four hours of cleaning at a rediculous rate. I told them that I've cleaned apts that failed at branbury and it does not take 4 hours to clean even the most horrendous mess. I called the housing office FIRST and so they were acting scared and were a lot more willing to coroperate. I hope you can get some money back. Yes-spread the word and get as many people as you can: DOWN WITH HERITAGE COURT!!!!! Please let me know how it goes-I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.
