Hi Desseritas. The holidays are almost here. I love this time of the year. But Christmas has been on my mind and of course I made one of the best Christmas cookies - chocolate crinkles.
I love these soft fudge chocolate cookies rolled in a confectioner's sugar.
What is your favorite holiday dessert?
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup shortening
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1. In a small saucepan combine chocolate and shortening. Heat and stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Cool for 15 minutes.
2. In a large bowl combine eggs, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, and salt. Stir in chocolate mixture. Gradually add flour, stirring until thoroughly combined. Cover dough; chill about 2 hours or until dough is easy to handle.
3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie sheets; set aside. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls into powdered sugar to coat generously. Place balls 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake about 15 minutes or until edges are just set. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
