Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkles are a favorite Christmas Cookie in this family.  I start getting requests for these cookies right after Thanksgiving.  A Teen in the family who has a birthday in December requests them for a birthday gift.  They are that good.  These cookies taste like a brownie, chewy, moist and fudgy.  As the cookies bake they will “crack”  to give them a crinkled look.  This recipe is from  Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book, 1963 edition.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 squares unsweetened chocolate (4 ounces), melted
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2 cups confectioners sugar, or more if needed

Mix oil, chocolate, and granulated sugar.  Blend in one egg at a time until well mixed.  Add vanilla.  Measure flour by dipping method.  Add baking powder and salt to the flour and add this into oil mixture. This will be a soft dough.  Chill the dough several hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 350°.  Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into confectioners sugar.  Roll generously in sugar; shape into balls.  Place 2″ apart on greased baking sheet or on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes; or until almost no imprint remains when touched lightly in center.  Cool on baking sheet for 1 to 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack.  Makes approximately 6 dozen cookies.
