Author Notes: 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

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  1. In a medium bowl, mix the cocoa, granulated sugar, and vegetable oil.
  2. Beat in eggs one at a time and stir in vanilla.
  3. In a separate large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; then stir into the cocoa mixture.
  4. 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)
  5. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  6. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and roll dough into 1-inch balls.
  7. Coat each ball with confectioners sugar before placing on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
  9. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool and enjoy!
