~Peppermint Chocolate Crinkle Cookies ~

Thought I'd share this recipe that I adapted from my Better Homes&Gardens cookbook. :-)

3 Eggs

1 1/2 cups sugar

8 tablespoons cooking cocoa

1/2 cup cooking oil

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract ( I added this to taste, so I'm not sure exactly how much)

2 cups all-purpose flour

Sifted powdered sugar

1. In a large bowl beat eggs, sugar, cocoa, oil, baking powder, vanilla and peppermint with an electric mixer until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Cover and chill dough for 1-2 hours.

2.Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls in powered sugar, place balls 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in a 375F (or about 180C) oven for 8-10 min. or until edges are set and tops are crackled. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

These ended up very soft and yummy. :-)
