Christmas Baking, Chocolate Crinkles
So, if you are like me baking at the last minute embrace sweet smells of chocolate cookies perfuming your home. Here's the recipe I used, that I got from my Mom, who as of the last time I talked to her had already made her cookies.
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup salad (canola) oil
2 tsp. vanilla
4 oz. melted unsweetened chocolate (cool)
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup confectioner's sugar
Mix granulated sugar, salad oil, vanilla and chocolate together. Blend in eggs one at a time. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Refridgerate at least 3 hours, or overnight. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Drop dough by the teaspoonful into confectioner's sugar; roll in sugar and shape into balls. Place about 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. Makes 6 dozen cookies.
