Six Geese of laying…. or six soft and gooey Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. Seems like an easy enough choice for me.
Well, I have been working on sugar cookies all day. Starting with making the dough, cutting out the shapes, baking, and decorating with icing. I am exhausted!! Today’s post isn’t about those cookies (don’t worry- it will be coming soon on our Christmas cookie countdown). But no fear, these chocolate crinkle cookies are like brownies in a cookie. Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
1 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
Powdered sugar for dusting
In a bowl, mix together cocoa powder, sugar and oil together until combined (2-3 minutes). Stir in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Then mix in the dry ingredients. Wrap dough in saran wrap, and refrigerate for 3 or more hours.
Preheat oven to 350 when ready to take the dough our of the fridge. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls. With hands lightly covered in oil, roll the ball in hands then roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet with about 2 inches between each. Bake for 10 minutes and then let cool on wire rack.
