December was a month of holidays, family time and lots and lots of eating. Specifically, a time of many sweets and assortments of cookies.
Someone at worked baked these chocolate crackle cookies for the office and after giving them a taste, I knew they were something I needed to try making for myself!
The combination of the soft almost fudgy like center and a light dusting of powdered sugar on top make these an all star holiday cookie to carry into the New Year!
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 2 large eggs, beaten lightly
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chip
In a bowl stir together flour, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and blend in butter. Stir in egg and vanilla until mixture is blended.
Fold in ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
Spread dough in a thin layer in bowl and freeze 10 minutes, or until firm.
Preheat oven to 400°F and lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
Put 4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar in a small bowl. Roll each piece of dough into a small ball then roll the dough ball in the confectioners’ sugar.
Arrange balls 2 inches apart on baking sheets, bake for 7-8. ( I did 7 because they taste better when soft) Cool cookies on racks.
