I halved this recipe and made it today. It was well enjoyed by all of us at home and I plan on making it again on 24th October this year, it being my mom and dad's 25th Wedding Anniversary! Today being the most 'SPECIAL' day of my life(as I met my BF on this day on ICQ on the internet for the very first time at 8pm on today's day, exactly 4 years back), I'd saved this recipe right from the moment you posted it just for TODAY! Thank You, Mirj! This is indeed what I'll give him to eat when he returns home back to tie the knot! This will be the 'perfect' shot at his stomach! This recipe indeed, IMHO, justifies the saying, "The way to every man's heart is through his stomach!".
This recipe is pretty easy to make and the cookies look very nice. They taste even better. Everyone I've shared them with has loved them.
I thought that they were great and so did my family and my kids hardly ever eat sweets and well they ate these cookies right up
Really great cookie and fairly easy to make. Great Chocolate Flavor. Looks great on a cookie platter for the Holidays! Thanks!
Well...made them AGAIN this year...brought them to work twice!!! they are a definite hit no matter where I take them...I really enjoy people's first reaction when they see them. I didn't have any chocolate squares..so ...I used 12 tablespoons of cocoa and 3 tablespoons of oil which is the equivilant...(for those who don't know)...I think that is going to be my preferred way...the cocoa will not sit on my shelf forever and it is less expensive than the squares! I don't know about any one else...but I needed way more powdered sugar than 3/4 cup...this is now one of MY "keeper" recipes!!!
We quadruple these and and freeze them after the rolling in powdered sugar. You get fresh baked crinkles all month long and none of the mess of the bowl of dough in your fridge for a week. Freeze on parchment on cookie sheet AFTER rolling in powdered sugar. When frozen solid an hour later, pour them into freezer bags. thaw on baking tray for a few minutes while you pre heat. Bake like normal..
Super chocolatey. Very sticky dough, but once you roll it in powdered sugared, it was easy to handle. I scooped the dough in balls into the powdered sugar. Came out great!
I was just going to add this 5-star recipe to Recipezaardom, but here it is! My recipe is exactly the same EXCEPT it uses 12 tablespoons of cocoa powder PLUS an extra 4 tablespoons of oil, instead of actual chocolate. Good to know it works either way! I'll add a photo of mine made with the cocoa. Delicious! (These also freeze exceptionally well.)
Delicious! A co-worker said they tasted like brownies. Slightly crunchy on the outside, moist and delicious on the inside. However, they didn't seem to keep very well - after a few days in a covered cookie tin they started to taste stale. I refrigerated the dough overnight, and still mine was very sticky. Also, the recipe only yielded roughly 3-4 dozen cookies for me, but perhaps I made the cookies too large.
I have been using the 3pack box for crackle cookies. very good product. I press a Havilland thin mint to the middle of each cookie right out of oven and when the chocolate looks a little melted I sprinkle them with crushed candy canes pieces. I get great compliments every time.
