. . . Cookie Time Tuesday-Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies . . .

With my stationery business consuming most of my time right now I am just too busy to do a lot of baking this month.  Just like last week I have another friend helping me out with Cookie Time Tuesday.  This recipe comes from Sarah--she isn't a blogger but she loves baking and when a group of us were recently out to dinner I asked if she'd be interested in sharing one of her cookie recipes.
Sarah says:  "Baking these cookies is part of my family tradition I guess you could say. My mom started baking them (I think she got the recipe from the back of a Blue Bonnet Butter box) along with her various other cookies like the Peanut Butter and Hershey Kiss Christmas classic! So continuing with the tradition I make them every year now."

So without further ado here is her recipe for Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies! 

Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies 
1 ¾   cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter (one stick)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate; melted and cooled
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
½ cup powdered sugar
1.      Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. 
2.      In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until well blended. Beat in eggs. Add melted chocolate and continue beating until mixture is smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate morsels. Cover and chill 1 to 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  3.      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar to coat generously. Place balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.    
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are set and tops are crackled. 
Cool on a wire rack.
Thank you so much, Sarah!

  1. Lindy that was so nice of you to ask Sarah to share her family recipe. Sarah as a "Non-Blogger" you did a great job and I will for sure be adding this to our family recipe collection.
