Six Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

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
4 eggs
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.
