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:
1 1/2 C. Sugar
4 squares (4 oz) melted unsweetened Chocolate
1/2 C. Oil
2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. Vanilla
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!
Let me know what you think of this recipe...Did you try it?
