2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
6 tbs Butter, softened
1 cup Sugar
Optional add ins: 1 cup Almonds, Walnuts or Pecans
3/4 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
2 tbs Strong Coffee, cold
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour cookie sheet or use Parchment Paper
In a bowl mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
In another bowl cream butter and sugar, add eggs and mix well. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. The dough will be stiff.
At this time mix in your optional add ins.
Divide dough into 2 slightly flattened logs and put on a prepared cookie sheet. I like the logs to be about 8 inches long and 4 inches wide.
Bake 350°F for 35 minutes or until the logs are firm to the touch.
Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Cut crosswise, about 3/4 of an inch thick. Lay on cookie sheet cut side up and return to oven for another 10 minutes.
Cool on wire wrack.
