Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
- 1 Cup of All Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 3/4 Cup of Granulated Sugar
- 1/2 Cup of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 2 tsp of instant coffee granules
- 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs at room temperature
- 1/4 Cup of oil canola or vegetable
- 1/4 Cup of powdered sugar for rolling the cookies in mixed with a tiny pinch of cinnamon powder
Preheat oven to 350 F once you are ready to bake. Line a couple of cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt, instant coffee granules and ground cinnamon.
Make a well in the middle and pour in the oil. Whisk in the egg and the vanilla extract.
Add the flour bit by bit and using an electric mixer beat everything together till mixed. The dough will look sticky.
Refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes till the dough is firm enough to be rolled into balls.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out little balls of dough.
Roll the little balls in powdered sugar and cinnamon powder mix. Arrange on the prepped cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
Transfer to a cooling rack once the cookies are cool enough to be handled and let the cookies cool down completely before serving.
