Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

What are your bake plans for this holiday season?  I, have a never ending list of bakes to try each holiday season and I ended up trying one or two from that, rest is all bookmarked forever :D

Chocolate crinkle cookies is one such bake from the list that I tried recently. These cookies are so good to watch them bake as they press down to flatten and take the shape of a crinkle cookie from a ball. The white icing sugar on top adds beauty to the cookie. Kids totally loved these and have already demanded for another batch soon. Do give this a try and enjoy with a cup of warm milk this season.

Preparation time ~ 10 minutes
Baking time ~ 10-12 minutes

all-purpose flour (maida) 1 cup (125 g)
cocoa powder 1/2 cup (50 g)
granulated sugar 1 cup
baking powder 1 tsp
salt 1/8 tsp
eggs 2
vanilla extract 1.5 tsp
oil 1/4 cup

to make icing sugar (1/2 cup)

  • Powder the granulated sugar in a blender jar and grind smooth.
  • Add cocoa powder to a bowl, add the powdered sugar. Mix this well. 
  • ICING SUGAR DIY- If you have store brought icing sugar, then forget this step. Otherwise, go ahead and prepare this up to roll the cookies. Add 1/4 cup granulated sugar to the same blender jar and add 1.5 tsp corn flour. Blend until sugar is smoothly powdered. Keep aside till you roll the cookies.
  • In the same blender jar, add the eggs. Blend until smooth. To this, add the vegetable oil and blend again. Add the liquid to the cocoa sugar mix and combine. Add the vanilla extract too. Mix smoothly without lumps.
  • Finally, sift the flour, baking powder and salt over the mix, and you will get a sticky dough. Cover with a cling wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight.
  • Remove, after chilling, roll out small portions of the dough in balls. I got 12 large balls or make 24 small balls. Roll the made balls in the prepared icing sugar and keep on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F/ 180 degrees C for 10 minutes. Place the tray and bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. The cookies are soft just after bake, so cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 
  • Enjoy with a cup of warm milk, or store in airtight containers till use.

* Depending on the oven temperatures, keep a close watch on the oven temperatures to prevent burning.
* I added 3/4 granulated sugar to make these cookies, but you can go up to 1 cup of granulated sugar.
