Natural vs Dutch processed cocoa in the crinkle cookies?

I assume I should use Dutch processed cocoa because the recipe calls for baking powder and not soda, but is that correct?

Since there is baking powder as the rising agent, you can use either. The only difference could be in the flavor. Dutch processed cocoa is smoother and mellower. Natural cocoa is said to be more bitter, but since there's so much sugar in these cookies, it would not be a bad thing to use natural cocoa.
