Crinkles have been around for a long time. My mom has been making this recipe as long as I can remember. I usually double this recipe because AJ can’t stop at just one. But then again, when it comes to a soft brownie-like cookie, who really can.

How To Make Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

I like to start this recipe by whisking the dry ingredients in a bowl. This lightens the mix and incorporates the salt and baking powder into the flour and cocoa powder. Set this aside.

Use a stand mixer or a hand mixer and beat the sugar and oil together. Gradually add in eggs and vanilla. Slowly mix in the flour mixture. Chill the batter for at least four hours.

When mixture is chilled, use a teaspoon size cookie scoop to scoop out a portion. The batter will be soft and not a thick dough, so don’t worry. Add some powdered sugar to a bowl. Roll each teaspoon-sized portion in the confectioners sugar and place on a baking sheet.
