Growing up, this was my favorite cookie. Sadly, I only got them from the school cafeteria, but even those were fabulous!! After years of trying various recipes to recapture that childhood treat, I have finally recreated the wonderful cookies that made some of my schooldays a little brighter. Here is the recipe that I now use for my own kids (who devour them!!):
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
1 c. baking cocoa
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil
2 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. powdered sugar
Combine cocoa, white sugar, and oil in large mixing bowl. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture.
If you like your dough a little less sticky, chill in bowl for 2-4 hours. I never have the patience for this! :)
Roll dough into one inch balls and then roll each in powdered sugar before placing onto lightly greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes. Leave on the cookie sheet for a minute before moving to wire racks to cool.
These are soooooo good, especially fresh out of the oven. ENJOY!! And for more wonderful recipes, please be sure to visit The Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap!
