10 ml vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. (Chocolate chips may be added now if desired.)

Scoop cookies onto a baking sheet 2 inches apart. Flatten with a fork if desired. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until the edges are firm but centre is still soft. Leave to cool slightly on baking sheet then remove to wire racks. Dust warm cookies with confectioners' sugar if desired.
