The original Chocolate Crinkle Cookie. This is the cookie your grandmomma made. Instead of reinventing the classic we kicked it old school and didn’t change a thing. When we bite into this cookie we wanted it to take us back to childhood.
Welcome to Day 3 of Christmas Week. This annual event was started in 2012, and is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic. This year we have over 35 bloggers sharing festive sweet recipes for the event.
Ok back to these Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.
Classic Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 4 oz. Baker's unsweetened chocolate
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups unbleached flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
Roughly chop chocolate and place in a small microwave safe bowl.
Microwave the chocolate in 10 second intervals, stirring in between times, until melted.
Mix oil, melted chocolate, and sugar in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer.
Blend in one egg at a time.
Mix in flour, baking powder and salt.
Chill for 4 hours or overnight.
Drop teaspoonfuls of the dough into a bowl of confectioners sugar.
Roll in sugar and shape into balls.
Place on a greased baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350F.
Let cookies cool for a couple of minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
I use a melon baller when scooping out the dough. It gives me the teaspoon size amount of dough I need and I like the long handle.
