cocoa lace cookies

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup flour
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray, set aside. In medium saucepan melt butter, stir in brown sugar and corn syrup. Bring to boil, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; stir in remaining ingredients until blended. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls 3 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake 9 minutes or until cookies spread thin and are deep brown (cookies will still be soft.) Cool 2 minutes on sheets. Working quickly with spatula, remove cookies to wire rack; cool completely. Sprinkle with 10 X sugar if desired. Makes about 2-1/2 dozen cookies.
