Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
8 Tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Powdered Sugar for coating dough, about 1/2 cup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together for about 3 minutes or until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until blended. Finally, add the flour mixture, a little at a time, until fully incorporated.
Using a tablespoon, scoop out dough and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in the powdered sugar until fully coated. Place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes or until they are puffed and begin to crackle. Cook completely.
