This holiday cookie recipe is easy, delicious, cute and crinkly. —Regan Baroni
Test Kitchen Notes
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
about 40 cookies
unsweetened cocoa powder
In This Recipe
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)
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper and roll dough into 1-inch balls.
Coat each ball with confectioners sugar before placing on the baking sheet.
