Food For Thought Tuesday: Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

For family home evening we made Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.

I remember eating these when I was young and I haven't had one in years, so I decided that it would be fun to make these for our treat for FHE. 

I love to include Hannah and Charlie when I cook.  Hannah is getting big enough to really do most of the work.  I just help her a little.  Obviously Charlie can't cook, but he loves to sit and watch me cook dinner every night.  


Hannah loves to help me cook.  She especially loves to stir!

Dipping the cookie dough in powdered sugar.
This was her favorite part, and the messiest part! 

She thoroughly enjoyed eating them! :)

And I did too! They were super yummy! 

I got the recipe from this blog. 


2 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup hershey's cocoa powder
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
powdered sugar

in a large mixing bowl, combine sugar & oil. add cocoa; blend well. beat in eggs and vanilla. combine flour, baking powder & salt; add to cocoa mixture blending well. cover; chill at least 6 hours. heat oven to 350. shape dough into 1 inch balls. roll in powdered sugar. place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. bake 12 to 14 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched. remove from cookie sheet; cool on wire rack. makes 4 dozen.

Review: I thought they turned out really well! I didn't chill my dough for 6 hours, I only did it for about 4 and they still turned out fine.  

I'm not sure if I made mine a little big, but it only made 3 dozen cookies for me. 

I will definitely be making these again!
