Christmas Cookie # 1-Chocolate Spiced Crinkle Cookies

Can you believe how close it is to Christmas? The season is in full swing and we know some of you are shuffling your schedule to fit in too many parties on too many days. Last weekend I had three parties in two days and I have a friend who had 5 in two days. I don't know how she did it. We thought it would be fun to give you a weeks worth of cookie/bar recipes that you could make and take to any of your parties. The best part is that they have all been tried by us first and are simply yummy. Here is recipe # 1 I got from a cute little website. My son and husband each ate these until they didn't feel well and I allowed myself one too. Rich, chocolaty and the spices add just the perfect warmth and holiday spirit to each cookie. Please enjoy and come back tomorrow for another recipe.

1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
4 TBL vegetable oil
2 cups packed brown sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa (this will give it a richer flavor but any unsweetened cocoa powder will work)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp all spice
1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder powdered sugar for rolling the cookies in

Heat oven to 300〫F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. If you dont have parchment paper spray pans with non-cookie spray or cookies will stick

In bowl of a mixer cream together butter, oil and brown sugar until well combined but not fluffy

Add eggs and vanilla all at one time and mix to combine In separate bowl sift all dry ingredients together.

Add dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix well ***It will be very soft, you did not do anything wrong**
Drop by rounded tablespoon into powdered sugar and carefully roll in powdered sugar until you get a good coating, place on prepared cookie sheet about two inches apart Bake for 12-15 minutes or until puffed all over.

They will look a little undercooked but will continue to cook on baking sheet for 5 minutes. When almost cool, transfer to wire rake until cooled completely.
