Chocolate Crinkle Cookie Recipe

When I was younger (make that way, way, waaay younger)… there were three things I thought were true -
Iced tea that has a frothy top has whipped cream on it. (I know, what was I thinking?!)
When the fruitcake recipe says to add orange rind, the white bitter part should be added also. I haven’t baked a fruitcake since.

Chocolate Crinkles are cake crumbs rolled into flattened balls then coated with confectioner’s sugar. Oh, wait… now I know that is not true, I now know they are baked.

I first tasted crinkles at a canteen in high school and for a chocolate lover, every bite is chocolate cookie heaven. So when someone requested that I feature a Chocolate Crinkles recipe, I went straight to work at it. Want to see how it goes?

Use a 1.5 oz ice cream scoop to roll the dough into balls then coat it with confectioner’s sugar before baking at 350 F for 10-12 minutes. Remember not to overbake so the cookies will still be chewy.
