Double Chocolate Ginger Crinkle Cookies

December 8, 2013


Author Notes: Sure, I’ve made crinkle cookies before. Although I’ll be honest in that I don’t remember the last time that was. Although they’re delicious, there’s rolling dough into balls and rolling in powdered sugar before you can even get them in the oven. High maintenance in my opinion. These chewy, gooey cookies start with a box of cake mix and a few additional ingredients – doesn’t ginger scream holiday? – that are simply stirred with a mixing spoon. In no time at all, I’m ready to scoop the dough, give them a sugar shower and wait for the tasty results to emerge from the oven.

Recipe adapted from this Fudge Crinkles recipe : http://www.food.com/recipe.... Totally inspired by the use of a cake mix to get cookies in the oven pronto!
