Blarney Stone-Kissed Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa

QUICK COOKIE GLAZE: Stir together 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 3 to 4 teaspoons milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract and 3 or 4 drops green food color, if desired, in small bowl until of drizzling consistency.
