When You Need TO WOW

I've bragged about these cookies before and it just so happens that I had to whip up a batch for my HS daughter today. She's participating in a "food day" in one of her classes and really wanted to WOW her classmates. If there's a cookie that can do that….IT IS THIS ONE!


Mama don't lie, y'all!

I haven't made them in a few months so I got busy… wrecking the kitchen. For real, I was trying to be quiet because my hubby was on a serious business call and flipped a whole cup of flour everywhere.  This isn't doing the mess justice.  It is even inside the door of the oven and down that little crack between the oven & counter.  Nice!



But let's not linger on the negative.  I'm going to post this recipe and hope that you will make them soon for your own family.  Oh and I might as well confess….this is NOT A SECRET special cookie recipe.  It's popular everywhere and people have been baking them for years.  I'm just blabbing about them because they are delicious and people love them when I bake them.  Enjoy your Friday & weekend, friends!  And the cookies too!  



Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll  COLD dough into one inch balls with lightly oiled palms.  1 large tablespoon or rounded teaspoon depending on what size you like. Coat each ball in confectioners’ sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.
