Grandma's Chocolate Crinkles

Vote for this contest contender!

My Grandma was an excellent baker. This recipe was one of her go-to favorites. It came from and old cookbook. It used to use solid baking chocolate but my grandmother cleverly substituted with cocoa powder and oil to stretch a dollar! :)

Prep Time: About 30 minutes, plus a couple hours chill time in the freezer

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: several dozen

Ingredients:

Steps:

  1. Mix the oil, cocoa, and granulated sugar.
  2. Add the eggs last, one at a time. Stir in the vanilla.
  3. In a separate dish, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt until well incorporated.

  5. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir well.
  6. Place the dough into a container and freeze for several hours to firm.

  8. Once firm, make sure to preheat your oven to 345 degrees F. My grandmother had it down to a science; the 5 degree difference makes what was a finicky recipe more reliable.
  9. Taking a small spoon, scoop up enough dough to make a 1 ½ inch round. Form into a ball, then roll the top half in powdered sugar.
  10. Place on nonstick cookie sheet. Alternatively, use a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes in a 345 degree F oven.

  12. Let cool on the baking sheet before digging in, otherwise the cookies will fall apart. Once cooled, they should be a little crisp on the outside and soft, not gooey, on the inside. Enjoy!

They look delicious but I don't see the amount of flour to put in the recipe. Did I miss that?

How much flour is used here? Also, is one cup cocoa correct? Want to make these, but thought recipe was missing some amounts. Thanks!

It is 2 cups flour. It was missing from the recipe. I have fixed the recipe to show this change. :)
