1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup shortening
1 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
What You Do:
- Mix the wet ingredients
- Mix the dry ingredients
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix
- Add the candy and mix (I had to mix it by hand, even with a Kitchenaid mixer, which I usually don't have to do even when suggested in recipes. I recommend it if you want the candy cane pieces mixed in evenly!)
- Bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes.
- Using a pie server with serrated edge may make it easier to remove the cookies from the cookie sheet
I modified this recipe from the German Chocolate Fudgy cookies on the Crisco website.
