      Nothing, absolutely nothing, was as delectable as these cookies that
     my grandmother taunted us with.
   
      Preheat oven to 350ø.
   
      In a large bowl, combine brown sugar and butter; mix well. Beat egg
     and add to creamed mixture; mix well. Add cocoa and mix.
   
      In a separate bowl, measure flour and baking soda. Add dry
     ingredients alternately with milk to egg and cocoa mixture.  Stir in
     vanilla and chopped nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet
     and bake at 350ø for 10-12 minutes. Remove to wire racks and let cool.
   
      While cookies are baking, make icing by combining all ingredients.
     Thin with a little milk if icing is too thick.
   
      When cookies have cooled, frost with chocolate icing.
