SO, my boyfriend’s adorable cousin, Grace, gave me this recipe for Christmas last year after I ate like a dozen of them. Here’s me and Grace, early Christmas morning:
I might’ve still been a little asleep. Grace is one of the sweetest young girls I have met. She is very smart and surprisingly witty! Grace is an avid baker, as well. In fact, this Christmas, she basically got a whole new kitchen! [I was pretty jealous :p] So, for our snacks on Christmas Eve, Grace made a slew of different cookies, one of which was Chocolate Crinkles. I had never had them before and upon tasting them I fell in love. Grace, you were part of the reason I happily gained around 4 extra lbs this holiday season! Haha.
So, I thought, why not try out my Christmas present and make them myself. I still think yours were better, Grace!
So, as the recipe goes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Then pour in liquid ingredients and mix [make sure not to overmix!]
Take an ice cream scooper and scoop out little balls from the batter.
Next, roll each ball into powdered sugar.
As Grace said, “Coat it totally.”
Place each coated ball on a prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. I took Grace’s suggestion and took them out at 8. It worked very well!
They were sooo yummy! Thanks again Grace!
