Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


This week has been hectic. Our potluck is tomorrow at work so I need to get up bright and early to bake some cookies (for our 2nd annual cookie competition) and make crab dip! Wish me luck:-).

This cookie got rave reviews from family and co-workers. They are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside with a perfect deep chocolate flavor. The confectioners sugar not only looks pretty but adds a subtle sugar flavor that tastes wonderful against the fudgy chocolate cookie. This would have been a great entry for the competition, however, since I already brought them in to work I need to make something different.

  2. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt and stir with a whisk until everything is combined. Slowly add to the chocolate mixture and mix until everything is combined.
  3. Place dough covered in the fridge and let chill for at least 3 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 and then scoop out tablespoon sized balls and roll between your palms. Roll in powdered sugar and give each dough ball a good coating. Place on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes and let cool slightly before moving to a cooling rack.

    The sea only comes right up to the road when the tide is in, it can be a bit scary when it is stormy like that as the spray can come way over to the other side of the road. In fact further up that road they had closed it off. But it is quite exciting to see it like that though.

  4. Your crinkle cookies look delectable! Good luck in the cookie competition! Can’t wait to hear what you bake.
