    Source of Recipe


    1 C. (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
    1 1/2 C. granulated sugar
    1 C. packed light brown sugar
    2 eggs
    2 tsp. vanilla extract
    1 1/2 C. all-purpose flour
    1/2 C. Hershey's Cocoa
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. salt
    3 C. quick-cooking or regular rolled oats
    1/2 C. chopped nuts

    Heat oven to 350F. In large mixer bowl, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy; blend in eggs and vanilla. In separate bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in oats and nuts. (Batter will be stiff.) Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 11 to 12 minutes or until set; cookies will be slightly moist in center. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
