Today we're making my VERY favorite cookies in the world. I don't make these very often--mostly because they have to sit in the fridge for four hours before you can bake them.
We're going to go ahead and make them anyway today. I'm going to send dough home with Kaffrin with instructions on how to bake them. This one isn't in the cookbook probably just because I don't make them very often.
We've donned our holiday aprons and the David Archuleta holiday station is playing on Pandora. Hands are washed (with the ABC method). We're ready to go. Here's the recipe for you.....
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
1 C. cocoa (the unsweetened powder kind)
1/2 C. oil
2 C. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C. powdered sugar
Mix the first three ingredients together; add the eggs one at a time; throw in the vanilla.
Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together and throw them in and mix them into the first mixture.
Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge for four hours.
After the four hours is up, preheat the oven to 350^. Grease the cookie sheets. Roll the dough into 1" balls and roll them in the powdered sugar.
Bake for 10 minutes.
I hate to add this little detail, but it MUST be said. These are AWESOME with a vanilla milkshake.
