3/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
icing sugar

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk and vanillia; mix well. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture.
Cover and refridgerate.

Preheat Oven to 350
(let batter warm up just a bit it's easier to handle but you still want it cold because of the chocolate)

Shape into 1 inch balls (they will rise a bit) place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until tops are cracked.
remove to wire racks and cool completely
Roll in icing sugar

Yield: 4 dozen
