Chocolate Crinkles

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • confectioners sugar for rolling

Directions

  1. Melt chocolate and butter over a double boiler. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In the meantime, whip the eggs with the sugar until thick. Add the vanilla extract and the melted chocolate and mix.
  3. Sift flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder into a bowl and add this to the chocolate mixture. Mix until combined.
  4. Place this bowl in the refrigerator for about 2 hours until the dough hardens enough to scoop out.
  5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Scoop one inch balls. Roll these in powdered sugar and place them on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Flatten the tops of the cookies a bit with your fingers and bake until set for about 12 minutes.
