Chocolate Crinkles

Happy New Year, to all my blogger friends...(not excluding readers who may not comment)...equal time to all!
Hope you all had a wonderful, and safe New Year's celebration...as we also did! This post may seem like a 'forgotten' or an 'after thought' post of my Chocolate Crinkles...but let me assure you that it is not a forgotten post of these lovely cookies that everyone loves around the Christmas holidays!

Chocolate Crinkles
recipe source: Gold Medal Flour
  • 1/2cup vegetable oil
  • 4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted, cooled
  • 2cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4eggs
  • 2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 2teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2cup powdered sugar

Directions

  • 1
    In large bowl, mix oil, chocolate, granulated sugar and vanilla. Stir in eggs, one at a time. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Cover; refrigerate at least 3 hours.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 3
    Drop dough by teaspoonfuls into powdered sugar; roll around to coat and shape into balls. Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  • 4
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until almost no imprint remains when touched lightly in center. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.


I find it a little odd to be posting a Christmas cookie (now, that Christmas is over) Chocolate Crinkles are so popular here in the U.S. and all over the world by now, I assume. They are so attractive with the light and dark contrast, and most certainly perfect for an interesting addition to a cookie tray or for serving by themselves, any time of the year!

I did not have a Christmas tree at my small beach condo apartment; but at my daughter Lora's they have a beautiful live and tall tree every year, and I spent time just about every day there to enjoy the holiday festivities, especially at City Place!

  12. Happy New Year Elisabeth! Best wishes for 2014...
    I have never made chocolate crinkles, but I do love them... I haven't had them for years... perhaps the last time was when I was in the States.
    It's still Christmas in our house... we're still listening to carols and the tree is still up... :)

  16. Happy New Year Elisabeth...these cookies look fabulous...I never made crinkles cookies...it is time to give this a try.
    Have a great week my dear :D

  17. Happy 2014, Elisabeth!!!

    Yes that you are right that chocolate crinkles cookies looks very Christmasy with their snowy look... You are right too that it is perfectly fine to indulge these cookies throughout the whole year :p

    Our Christmas in Florida and Melbourne, Australia are not snowy anyway... and so I wouldn't bother eating chocolate crinkles just for Christmas :p ... I'm still trying to convince myself that it is ok to eat these cookies even Christmas is over... ha ha ha!

    Stop thinking... Just eat! Cheers!
