    2      cups          butter or margarine
    2 1/2  cups          sugar
    3                    eggs
    2      teaspoons     vanilla
    5      cups          flour
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
    1 1/4  cups          unsweetened cocoa powder
 Cut four 14"x12 pieces of waxed paper or plastic wrap; set aside. In a bowl,
 cream butter or margarine, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. In
 a bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cocoa powder. Stir flour mixture into
 sugar mixture until evenly distributed.
 Divide dough into 4 pieces. Shape each piece into and 8 to 10 inch roll. Wrap
 each roll in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Place in freezer container with a
 tight-fitting lid, or wrap airtight in a piece of foil. Label and date. Store

 To make cookies:
 Slightly thaw a roll of dough. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease baking
 sheets. Slice dough into slices or chunks. Arrange slices on prepared baking
 sheets about 1/2 inch apart. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until cookies are set on
 edges and slightly firm on top. Remove cookies and cool on wire racks.
