Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
This cookie recipe is a family favorite. The cookies don't last long after they are baked. They are like a chocolate brownie only in cookie form.



1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 squares of unsweetened chocolate (melted)
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup powdered sugar
Mix oil, melted chocolate and granulated sugar. Blend in one egg at a time until well mixed. Add vanilla. Mix dry ingredients together and stir into oil mixture. Cover and chill dough for several hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Put a teaspoonful of chilled dough in the palm of your hands and make a ball. You may have to "grease your hands" with oil or shortening. Roll the ball of dough around in the powdered sugar until all it's surface is covered. Place the balls of dough about 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake about 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Overbaking changes the texture of the cookies from a soft cookie to a harder cookie.

Makes about 5 to 6 dozen cookies.

Enjoy!

Pat, I have a recipe that's similar to yours, although I think it makes a much bigger batch. Do they taste just like brownies when they're done? If so, they're my DD's favorite cookies in the world.

When she was home I had a hard time keeping her out of the dough so there would be cookies for Christmas. LOL

I can't say that I have a particularly special recipe but I we like a variation on a tried and true.

Make a double batch of Oatmeal Cookie dough on the Quaker oatmeal can, omit the cinnamon in 2/3 of it. (I actually omit it in all of it because we don't like it in the raisin one, either.)

Add 1 C. of nuts

1 C. of chocolate chips

1 C. of raisins

1 C. of coconut

Stir well and bake according to directions. The extras make the cookies taste really good. I then add only raisins and/or nuts to the other 1/3 of the dough and chocolate chips and/or nuts to the remaining 1/3.

Some of my family likes one or the other type of cookie. grin

Sugar Cookie Icing

cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract
food coloring


Stir the powdered sugar and the milk until smooth.
Beat in corn syrup and vanilla until icing is smooth and glossy.
If it's too thick, add more corn syrup.
Divide icing into separate bowls and stir in food coloring as desired.
You can dip the cookies, paint them with a paint brush or spread them using a knife or the back of a spoon.
