Old Fashioned Chocolate Drop Cookies

This recipe may not be as 'old as the hills' but it's close.  It's as old as your Great Grandmother anyway!  Top these with a simple chocolate icing made from powdered sugar, butter and a little vanilla along with either about 1 1/2 squares melted chocolate or some cocoa powder.  The amount of chocolate is up to your own tastes.
