An easy recipe for chocolate crinkle cookies
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are one of my favorite Christmas cookies in the world. It’s a decadent chocolate bite of heaven and a must at any Christmas table or cookie swap. To make it fudgier, more chocolatey, and better than any other version, you have to do two simple steps that aren’t often found in other recipes. First, use melted chocolate — not cocoa powder — in the batter for a rich-tasting cake that’s perfectly smooth in the middle. Second, roll scooped cookie dough balls in granulated sugar, then powdered sugar for the final crispy crust. It’s a process that takes a little more time and effort (you’ll need to set up a double boiler, let the melted chocolate cool, and refrigerate the dough for at least two hours), but the results are worth it in the end. .
What are crinkle cookies?
Crinkle cookies are distinctive for their cracked tops covered in powdered sugar. To get the right amount of lift and spread to your curls, use a mixture of baking soda and baking powder. Don’t forget to take into account the appropriate cooling time for the dough, as it must be firm before rolling it in powdered sugar and baking it.
How do you know when your chocolate chip cookies are done?
Look for the cracked top! You should bake the cookies until they are cracked on top and the edges look set, but the center is still soft.
Why are my curly cookies flat?
Flat cookies are often the result of using too little flour or too soft butter. In the case of crinkle cookies, if you don’t let the dough firm in the refrigerator before scooping and rolling out, it will spread too much in the oven and lose the crackly, domed top.
What is the best way to store chocolate chip cookies?
it’s easy! Simply place the cookies in an airtight container and store them at room temperature. They’ll keep a little longer than other chocolate desserts thanks to their soft, fudge center. They will stay fresh for up to a week.
