Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

A most delicious cookie! They were,( note I emphasize “were“) crispy outside and very chocolaty and tender inside. Very easy to make though a little messy on the hands, it’s worth it!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

1 c brown sugar
1 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder (dark or regular)
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
4 Tbsp cold butter -cut up in bits
2 large eggs beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 c chocolate chips (semi sweet)

Put the brown sugar in a medium bowl and break it up; then put flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a sifter and sift on top of the sugar. I use a simple mesh strainer with a handle and put it on a plate while I measure the ingredients into it. Then sift over the bowl, adding what’s left on the plate also. Mix well.

Add the butter bits and repeatedly pinch into the mixture with your finger tips. (yes, this gets messy, try not to lick your fingers until your done!) Do this until it’s like breadcrumbs. Then add the beaten eggs, vanilla and lastly the chips. If the dough isn’t stiff enough then add more flour. I put it into the refrigerator to chill.

 

rolling balls of dough in sugar

Take a teaspoon and scoop up a little, roll into little balls and roll in confectioners sugar or cocoa powder and sugar mixture. Put on lightly greased cookie sheet about 2″ or so apart. Bake 10 min then turn pan, bake 2 more minutes. Adjust your baking time as needed.

notes:

  • this dough was very sticky, but if you dust your hands with flour or confectioners sugar it helps. Try not to handle it much, just take off the teaspoon and roll quickly into a ball, dropping into the powdered sugar.
  • Cocoa powder and powdered sugar mixture for rolling, is half and half amounts.
  • You can use dark or regular cocoa powder for the recipe, for the ones pictured I used dark, but rolled in regular with powdered sugar.
