Here is the recipe for the delicious Christmas Crinkle Cookies I made this morning. I’d found this recipe a little while back on one of my favourite food blogs ‘Iowa Girl Eats‘. They just looked so pretty and seemed surprisingly easy to make so I wanted to give it a go myself. And guess what, they taste just as good (if not better) as they look!! A soft, fudge-brownie style cookie….yummmm. Enjoy :)
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies Makes approximately 25 cookies Ingredients: 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 cup vegetable oil 2 eggs 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup icing sugar
Directions: In a bowl mix together cocoa, sugar, vanilla and vegetable oil. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until mixture is smooth. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Mix into wet ingredients in 3 batches, mixing until just combined in between each batch. Cover the dough and chill for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
I was so excited one I started to see the cracks appearing in the cookies!! Place on a non-stick sprayed, or parchment paper lined, baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. And then show them off to all your friends and family, they are bound to be impressed. And they will disappear in no time. Mmmmmmmm!
