Chocolate Crinkles

I love to bake cookies.  Actually it is something that I am able to do really really well.  On New Year's  Eve I had a friend ask me if I knew how to make Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. Of course I can make Chocolate Crinkles - well with a little help from my Better Homes and Garden's Cook Book!
 So this post is for her.  (Along with a plate of cookies)
First I creamed together eggs, and sugar

Then I added 4 oz. of Semi Sweet Chocolate that I melted in a double boiler...Don't get excited here, my microwave broke this morning, hence the double boiler. The recipe calls for unsweetened chocolate but I did not have that, so I used semi - sweet

If you don't have this kind of Chocolate in a baking block you can substitute the 4 oz with 3/4 C. Cocoa Powder and 3T. Oil - in addition to the oil that the recipe already calls for.  SO.....I added the chocolate and the oil

Then I added the baking powder, vanilla, and flour

And then the cookie dough went into the fridge.  You need to cool this down for 1 1/2 - 2 hours before you are able to make the cookies.  Once the dough was ready I used my mini cookie scoop.  It holds 1 T. of batter.  I dropped the scoops into powdered Sugar

And put them on an ungreased cookie sheet

And baked them at 375* for 10 minutes

Here is the recipe:

Chocolate Crinkles
3 Eggs
1 1/2 C. Sugar
4 squares (4 oz) melted unsweetened Chocolate
1/2 C. Oil
2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. Vanilla
2C. Flour
Powdered Sugar (about 1-1 1/2 cups)

Follow my steps above ~ I was able to get 4 dozen cookies from this recipe.
2 dozen to give away to a couple friends and 2 dozen to keep at home!
