(these are supposed to have nuts in them, but I left them out for Heather B and Lydia's nut allergies)
If using nuts, 2 1/2 c nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds)
3 c confectioner's sugar
2/3 c cocoa powder
1/4 t salt
1 t vanilla, almond or cherry extract (I used cherry this time)
1 t ground coriander
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together your dry ingredients, and in a separate bowl mix very well your wet ones. Combine them all, and mix just until moistened. It is a very sticky dough.
Drop by tablespoonful onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets and bake about 20 minutes. I used the convection feature, which helped these along a lot. If you do not have it, I would recommend maybe going 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, but not from the paper. Pull the paper off the sheet and line with new paper for your next batch. Let cool on the paper then peel off and eat!
