Crinkles or crackles as they are sometimes called are a nice light cookie. Not overly sweet tasting, the icing sugar gives the subtle hint of sweetness to each bite. These are one of the easiest and prettiest cookies to prepare. Very little effort required and the end result is beautiful! Crinkles are always a hit in the office and at any occasion I bring them to.

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 4-1 oz squares of chocolate, chopped, melted & cooled
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup icing sugar

Mix the oil, chocolate and sugar. Blend in eggs, one at a time until well mixed. Add vanilla. Mix flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl.Gradually add to the wet ingredients, a little at a time and stirring after each addition. Refrigerate the dough for at least 4 hours before rolling tablespoons full into balls. I froze mine for faster setting time. You only need it in the freezer for 1/2 hour. When you roll the dough into balls then roll them in icing sugar before placing on baking sheet. Place 2 inches apart as they will crack and spread into a flat cookie.

Bake in a 350°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on racks. You can then place them in a covered contained or cookie jar for 3 or 4 days, if they last that long!
