Linda's Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Jane used to send these to me in care packages when she was away.
It's her mom Linda's recipe.

1 cup butter at room temperature (2 sticks)
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cups coca
2 cups flour
nuts or chocolate chips optional

mix in the order listed
roll into 1" balls & place 2" apart 
bake 350 degrees for 9 minutes
do not over bake (comes out very soft)

do not add chocolate chips 
they will cause structural failure 
and they'd be redundant

before baking dip tops in sugar
after baking drizzle with chocolate glaze
