Crinkle Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted 
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 
  • 3 large eggs
  • Powdered sugar for rolling

In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda. 

Whisk together the melted butter, sugar and eggs until well combined. 

Pour into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. 

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours. 

Preheat oven to 350° and line two large baking sheets with parchment. 

Place powdered sugar in a small bowl. 

Scoop about two tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. If the dough is too sticky, wet your hands slightly to help roll dough. 

Roll dough into powdered sugar, coating well, and then place on prepared baking sheet two inches apart. 

Bake cookies until cookies puff and crack – about 14 minutes. The edges will just be set, but the cracks will still look slightly underdone. 

Let cool on baking sheet.
