GUYS I MADE COOKIES AND DIDN’T FUCK THEM UP.
Chocolate Spice Cookies
1 ¼ cups brown sugar
1 cup shortening
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
6 tbsp cocoa powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cake spice, or ½ tsp ginger and ½ tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup miniature chocolate chips (optional)
1/3 cup sugar
½ cup powdered sugar
Beat brown sugar, shortening, and vanilla in a large bowl; beat in eggs.
Sift together flour, cocoa, salt, spices, and baking soda. Gradually add to egg mixture, stirring just until blended; it will make a very stiff, slightly sticky dough. Stir in chocolate chips if desired.
Cover and chill for 1 hour; remove from fridge and roll dough into balls of about 1 ½ inches in diameter. Chill for another hour (you can just put the dough balls back in the same bowl, they won’t stick together).
Heat oven to 375F.
Take dough out of the fridge and roll in sugar, then powdered sugar; place about 2″ apart on baking sheet (you will need two). Half of the cookies above are rolled in both sugars, half just in regular sugar because I don’t care much for powdered sugar.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until cookies are set. Remove to rack and cool completely.
