Chocolate Crinkles


One of our favorite cookies!  Dark chocolate looks so pretty contrasted with snowy white powdered sugar!



Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

2 c sugar
4 eggs
1/2 c vegetable oil
4 T butter, melted
2 t vanilla
1 c cocoa
2 c flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
In mixer, combine sugar and eggs. Add remaining wet
ingredients. Mix well. Sift dry ingredients and add, mixing well.
Dough will be wet and sticky. Chill several hours or overnight.
Roll balls of dough in 1 c powdered sugar.
Bake at 350 on parchment lined baking sheets for 8-12 minutes.
Cookies will flatten, get crackly and cracks will look dry.

Yum.

  9. This Grumpster above is always on some kind of diet. Betsy, we must abduct him, chain him down in our dungeons and feed him properly for once! :) Now, are you with me?

    1. You know old RCB is always in the mood for a couple of chains, Dazzling Dezzmeister. X-mas Speedos... fine, but um no eggs please. You'd literally kill me. Wait a minute... Speedos... eggs... that's quite a diturbing picture. Betsy, it's ALL his fault. Let's chain him, too.

    2. You may want to look up that new word: diturbing. Dezz always makes me a bit nervous.

  10. Oh, it looks delicious.;) You have to let me in on your secret of how you manage to take care of your 5 men, a house, to cook and bake and to blog at the same time. You must be a superwoman.;))
    Have a great week ahead dear Betsy,
    xoxo

  12. Mmmmm. These look so delicious! I went to my first cookie swap a few days ago, and I came home with 3 dozen assorted and tasty cookies with recipes to match. I will add this recipe to the new ones I just acquired. Yum.

    1. Oh, that sounds fun! I've never had good luck with cookie swaps! I feel like I bring beautiful tasty cookies and come home with hard little burnt rocks. LOL! Maybe I'm just a cookie snob. After two or three swaps over the years, I've simply declined any further offers. hahaha. I'm glad yours was nice...how very fun! Fun to get the recipes, too!

  13. Your house must smell deliciously of baking most of the time. I've bought the ingredients to make another batch of your granola today. I enjoyed the last lot I made very much.

    1. Ah...funny you should mention that granola! I haven't made it in a while either and have it on my list to make. It's the best, isn't it? We love it! It makes a nice gift, too...I'll have to remember that for next year! :)

  14. I guess I will have to start calling you "The Crazy Cookie Lady"..hahaha
    I agree about the cookie swap...
    I always felt cheated as well...
    The only ones I make are my shortbread...and I did not get to them today..
    Moving rather slowly...hahaha...if you know what I mean!!

    ENjoy your evening.
    Cheers!
    Linda :o)

    1. Just so 'crazy' is part of the title, you're probably right! lol...
