1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream butter in mixing bowl until light. Add both sugars, continuing to beat until fluffy. Add eggs and extract, while still beating.
Measure flour, cocoa powder and baking soda into bowl. Add flour mixture to butter/sugar mixture in mixing bowl and mix until combined, scraping down side of bowl as necessary. Do not over beat.
Place even sized spoonfuls of dough mixture on parchment spacing evenly apart.
Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Slide parchment off of pan and onto counter to allow cookies too cool. Nope, you can not eat just one.
