Chocolate Crinkle Cookies



Let me just start with this: these cookies are Amazing! With a capital A. They really are that good. Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are the hubby's favorite Christmas cookie and I can see why. I made these for him a while ago and failed miserably, so I've been a little hesitant to try again. I finally did and it paid off! The crew at work gave it two thumbs up and the hubby went back for 4...5...6 cookies last night? So yeah, they are pretty tasty. 

Here's the recipe - originally from Betty Crocker (found here):

// 350 degrees // 10-12 minutes // makes 72 //

Ingredients
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled (Remember: you can substitute 3 tablespoons cocoa and 1 tablespoon cooking oil for every 1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate)
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions
1. Combine oil, chocolate, white sugar and vanilla.
2. Stir in eggs, one at a time.
3. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt.
4. Refrigerate for 3 hours (I only put it in the fridge for 1 hour though...).
5. Grease cookie sheet or use parchment paper (I used parchment paper - it's my new favorite).
6. Make 1 inch round balls and roll in powdered sugar so they are covered and place on the cookie sheet.
7. Bake for 10-12 minutes.



Trust me, these are so good. I hope you enjoy!
