Giant chocolate cookies decorated with an outline of your child's hand.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup HERSHEY®'S Cocoa Powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

Heat oven to 350 F.
Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl on medium speed of mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
Drop dough by slightly heaping 1/4 cupfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, about 3 inches apart (put only 4 on a cookie sheet). Shape into balls. With palm of hand, flatten to 3-1/2-inch rounds.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. (Cookies will spread during baking; baked cookies will be about 5 inches in diameter.) Cool 3 minutes; using a wide spatula, carefully remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
Make a pattern of child's hand on paper, with fingers spread. Cut out the pattern; place pattern on cookie. Using pattern as a guide, outline hand with icing; repeat with remaining cookies. Garnish if desired. 12 to 14 cookies.
