I’m coming up on my one year anniversary of being a big kid with a full time job. It’s gone by so fast!
One down side of working every day is that it cuts into baking time. Normally I can survive if I have to go a few weeks in between making things, but at CHRISTMAS TIME?? It just wasn’t possible. Not to worry, the tradition of baking large amounts of treats with my mom lives on. We just had cram em in to a smaller window! That being said, we wanted to try out some new recipes this year.
Believe it or not, I had never even heard of a Chocolate Crinkle Cookie until a few months ago, let alone TRIED one! I thank my co-workers for introducing me to one of my new favorites. These cookies basically taste like a Brownie covered in powdered sugar. Soft chewy insides with a crisp edge. You seriously cant go wrong.
After mixing the dough, make sure to chill it for at least an hour and up to over night before baking.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll into balls. I like to make them about the size of a quarter, but it’s totally up to you. The smaller they are, the more crunchy they seem to be.
Drop the balls into a bowl of powdered sugar and cover completely.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Voila! Chocolaty, crunchy, amazing. Enjoy!
