mom's chewy chocolate cookies

Not to be hyperbolic, 
but these are the most perfect chocolate cookies you will ever eat.
Cream together: 
1 1/4 c butter, softened
2 c sugar

2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla 

Combine and stir into creamed mixture:
2 c flour [I did 2 1/4]
3/4 c unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
dash salt

My mom says here to "Stir in 1 c of chopped nuts, if desired."
I never desire that for a cookie. 
I, however, stirred in a cup of chocolate chips.

Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. 
Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. 
Cool on sheets until set; remove to wire rack to cool completely.

I also saw these amazing triple chocolate cookies on Sweetapolita and had to try them.
The glaze is AWESOME, but you will definitely need a huge glass of milk.
