Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

The annual baking of chocolate crinkle cookies marks the beginning of the holiday season and the end of 11 months of restraint. See, I'm a big fan of these cookies, but resist baking them throughout the year to preserve the holiday magic that surrounds them. They puff and crackle, and the secret is to go crazy with the confectioner's sugar. Don't be shy! Double coat those puppies and then some. No one can resist these crackly cookies with a hefty dusting of "snow." 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.

This is my favorite Christmas cookie of all time. My great aunt Bertie made them each year when we visited her in Lancaster. Do you think it's a Lancaster thing? I see they are getting some notice on food sites, but for many years I've made them for friends who never heard of them. Can't wait to make a batch.
