Cookies for my Loves!

As with all busy moms, I'm trying to use any time I get off to move forward so I don't always feel like I'm rushing, rushing, rushing!  Are you with me?!  So, Monday I had the day to myself, I was fighting the blues from the lack of sunshine, so I figured cookies would lift my spirits, and make my family SUPER happy that I spent some time thinking of them!  The problem is, I hadn't been to the store for baking items in FOREVER!!  I tweaked a few recipes I found and came up with this gem of a recipe, it'll definitely be a staple for the lunch boxes!

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

1 Stick of Crisco (or butter) melted

1 Stick of Crisco (or butter) room temp

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tbls molasas (maybe a bit more if you're like me!!)

2 large eggs

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp finely ground coffee (a flavored coffee might add some interest)

2 cups of flour

3/4 cup unsweetned cocoa

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

Using standard mixer, beat butters, sugar, and molasas until light and fluffy.  Add in eggs one at a time and mix well.  In a medium bowl, mix your dry ingredients with a whisk and slowly add them to the mixing bowl while mixer is on slow.  Mix until a soft dough forms.  Cover and refrigerate dough for 1 hour.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 8-10 minutes.
