Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Mmmm. Chocolate crinkle cookies are one of my favorite baked treats. They go wonderfully with a hot cup of coffee on a cool, drizzly day like today. And they’re great to share with friends too! Here’s my recipe:


½ cup vegetable oil
4 (1 oz.) unsweetened chocolate squares, melted and cooled slightly
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup powdered sugar

Blend oil, melted chocolate and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well after each. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Make into dough balls (about two teaspoons each) and chill in the refrigerator several hours or overnight. Right before baking, heat oven to 350 degrees. Dip dough balls into powdered sugar until they are well-dusted. Place 3 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. They will appear poofy and crinkly when ready to remove from oven.

The cookies freeze very well. Just remove them from the freezer and thaw at room temperature 1-2 hours before serving.

Happy baking!
