This holiday cookie recipe is easy, delicious, cute and crinkly.—Regan Baroni
Food52 Review: These holiday crinkle cookies are old-school (in a good way). As my kitchen filled with the scent of baking chocolate, I remembered the cookies my grandmother used to make. Regan Baroni's recipe makes cookies with a slighty crisp edge and a fudgy middle. I refrigerated the dough overnight, resulting in perfect crinkles in the cookies. Beware the powdered sugar shower you get from each bite, a sign of a cookie well enjoyed! —FrozenFoodie
Makes: about 40 cookies
cup unsweetened cocoa powder
cups granulated sugar
cup vegetable oil
teaspoons vanilla extract
cups all-purpose flour
teaspoons baking powder
cup confectioner's sugar
- In a medium bowl, mix the cocoa, granulated sugar, and vegetable oil.
- Beat in eggs one at a time and stir in vanilla.
- In a separate large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; then stir into the cocoa mixture.
- Cover the dough and let cool in fridge for at least 4 hours. (This step is incredibly important to get the crinkles in the cookies)
