From the monthly magazine that I get from Texas Co-op Power - 2006 holiday recipe contest runner-up; Emily Huffman of Austin - to give credit where it's due. Easy, quick cookie with 2 of my favorite flavors. I think some grated orange zest would really gild the lily for me.
- 4 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄4 cups packed brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup molasses
- 1 egg
- 3 cups baking mix (Bisquick or similar or make your own such as Bisquick)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (if you haven't tried grating your own, get thee to the market for whole nutmeg! ,-)
- 1 1⁄4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- granulated sugar, to coat
- Preheat oven to 350ºF.
- In a large bowl, combine butter, vanilla, brown sugar, molasses & egg till smooth.
- Add baking mix, cocoa, ginger & nutmeg. Mix well.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Form into 1-inch balls & roll in granulated sugar.
- Place on ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
- Bake 11-12 minutes.
What a great little crinkle Susie. So glad I tagged and tried these. I must say I was leery of the ginger as not a fan. But, it comes thru very nicely and not powerful. Followed your recipe exactly as printed and rolled in Splenda. Tagged for 123 HitWonders 08~
I wanted to make some crinkles. Our women's ministry is going to give cookies to our local radio station, the fire department and the police station. These are so yummy, I'm glad I made some extra so I can have some too. Thank you for posting!
I made these knowing that my DW is a real lover of chocolate chip cookies. Wasn't sure how the ginger would go over? WOW everyone including my wife enjoyed these!! Great recipe and real easy to make.
