Countdown to 2012, Day 21. Recipe Wednesday: Chocolate Crinkles

Over on my recipe request poll, Mija asked me to share my favorite cookie recipe.  My family makes these cookies every Christmas, and the holiday wouldn’t be the same without them.  I’m lucky they’re only around at Christmastime, or I’d probably eat nothing but them all year!

Chocolate Crinkles

Makes: About 90+ cookies


  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 4 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 cups granulated sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
