Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

On Sunday, I attended my friend Imke's 6th annual cookies and wreath party. We bake, we tie bows and perhaps most important, we drink Glögg.

I baked my all-time favorite Christmas cookie: Chocolate Crinkles.

I couldn't find my recipe, but I found one on All Recipes that is similar if not exact. These are easy to make and are a bit crunchy on the outside, but like a brownie on the inside. The confectioner's sugar makes it appear as if they were just treated to a dusting of snow. The cookies on the plate above (a second batch I baked yesterday) disappeared in about thirty seconds.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into one inch balls.

Coat each ball in confectioners' sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.

I've never made these, but I've bought them many times from a local bakery that laces them with a hint of mint. Yum!

Yum! Thanks for sharing! I think these just might wind up in my cookie gift boxes.

Hi Maria!

My friend is German, and buys some of the ingredients from Ikea. ;)

Is your friend by any chains Swedish? Glögg is a popular drink in our country this time of year, and of course, the spelling is definitely swedish :)
Best wishes from Maria in Sweden
