Servings 30 Cookies
- 1 1/2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 14 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 3/4 cups dark brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg plus 1 large yolk
- 1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 3/8 cup cocoa
- 4-8 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment; set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking soda, and baking powder; set aside.
Place butter in a large microwave-safe bowl and melt. Allow butter to cool.
When butter is cool, whisk in brown sugar, vanilla, and salt until there are no lumps. Mix in egg and egg yolk. Mix in flour mixture just until combined. Do not over stir.
Roll dough into 2 tablespoon balls. Place on prepared cookies sheet 2 inches apart. Do not flatten.
Bake cookies 1 sheet at a time in the preheated oven, rotating sheet halfway through baking until cookies are slightly puffy and edges have begun to set, about 15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes then carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before glazing.
In a medium mixing bowl sift together sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk in 4 tablespoons milk and vanilla until smooth. Add more milk, a little at a time to make a pourable glaze.
Set wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Place cookies 1/2 inch apart on wire rack. Spoon glaze on top of cookies. Let cookies set on a rack until glaze firms.
