  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg

  7. Flatten each cookie slightly with the back of a spoon or your fingers.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are set but the centers are still soft.
  9. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
