Simpatico: Chocolate Crinkles

Simpatico

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Chocolate Crinkles

Yesterday was cold. I mean C-O-L-D. It was a day to snuggle under a blanket, turn on some music and not go out of the house. Period. Not even for the dogs. I just kick them out the backdoor and watch them shiver while doing their business all from the comfort of my 72 degree house.

It was also the day for cookies. Cookies hot from the oven... aroma filling the house... kitchen extra perky warm from the oven being on!! (see I got a 2fer there).

So I looked through the pantry, saw a new container of cocoa powder and decided these were the cookies that I wanted... I only made 20 of them for our enjoyment yesterday. I still have a large container of dough available to drop cookies this week after Reed comes home from school.

Hope you enjoy!

Chocolate Crinkles
* 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 dough into one inch balls. (I used the large size melon ball scoop.) Coat each ball in confectioners' sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets. *Do not flatten the cookies, they will do this naturally themselves.

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.
