I'm new here and I'm not really a professional chef or anything related to culinary but I just want to learn more about baking and cooking. Anyway, I have a recipe to share. Even though I'm not a professional, I guarantee you these cookies are the best. I think any girl will like this, even guys. :)
1/4 cup (59 g) unsalted butter
1 cup (237 g) cocoa powder
1 cup (237 g) granulated sugar (or 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup brown sugar)
2 large eggs
1 1/2 (355 g) cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon vanilla extract (artificial or pure)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (118 g) confectioner’s sugar for coating
1) In a medium bowl, cream the butter using an electric or hand mixer. Add the granulated sugar and beat until the butter-sugar mixture is fluffy. Do not overbeat.
2) Add the cocoa powder and mix until incorporated.
3) Add the eggs, one at a time. Then, mix the vanilla extract.
4) In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together. Then, add this to the chocolate mixture. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
5) Cover with a plastic wrap and let the cookie dough chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to 6 hours.
6) Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) and place the rack in the center of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
7) Place the confectioner’s sugar in a bowl. Using a scooper or a teaspoon, scoop the cookie dough and form into 1-inch balls and then roll the balls in the confectioner’s sugar.
8) Place the balls in the cookie sheet, about 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart from each other.
9) Bake the cookies for about 9 to 11 minutes. Remove from oven and place them on a wire rack to cool.
10) Serve and enjoy the crinkles!
