Chocolate Crinkle Cookies Recipe

These cookies end up looking so pretty even though they are very simple to make.  They pack a nice chocolatey flavor without having to mess around with melting chocolate – you just use cocoa powder!

2 cups white sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir together white sugar, cocoa powder and vegetable oil. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.  Stir flour mixture into the cocoa mixture. Cover bowl and chill for 4 hours or more.

To avoid sticking, line cookie sheets with parchment paper (or I use Matfer Exopat reusable baking mats – LOVE THEM!). Roll dough into one inch balls. I like to use a number 50 size scoop.  Roll each ball in powdered sugar and place on the baking sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to fully cool.' About Chrysa
