Easy, Healthy and Tasty Cocoa Cookie recipe (adapted)

yields about 20 cookies

1/4 cup butter, softhened (1-1/2 sticks)
1 cup sugar (i use 1/2 white and 1/2 brown)
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or 2 small tubes of the super-market's
1 pinch of salt
2 cups of all purpose flour (i use whole grain)
2 tbsp of cocoa powder

preheat oven to 180 C.
in a large bowl beat sugar and butter together with an electric mixer.
add the egg, salt, vanilla and cocoa.
beat until smooth.
stir in the flour and knead lightly until a soft sticky dough forms.

(at this point you are supposed to divide the dough in half put it in a waxed paper forming a cylinder about 1-1/2 inches in diameter.
refrigerate until the dough gets firm for 2 hours and then cut the dough in slices and arrange the cookies on a greased cookie sheet.
bake for 12-15 min.)

i skipped that step and i just rolled and formed the cookies with my hands, baked in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes.

the cookies are great, crunchy healthy and tasty!
