Christmas Crinkle Cookies

The Holidays come in so fast and sometimes it’s hard to find a good fail-proof option to make for a party or even at home for the kids. This Christmas Crinkle cookie is super easy and fun to make! My oldest and I had a great time making the batter. It is almost like a homemade brownie batter. Actually- IT IS a homemade brownie batter. But when you roll each spoonful in powdered sugar it becomes a snowy delight and perfect for Christmas! We love them and I know you will too!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup powdered sugar, for coating the cookies

In a medium bowl mix your dry ingredients. (Flour, salt, cocoa, baking powder Whisk together and set aside.

​With a stand mixer mix oil and sugar until light and fluffy. (About 2 minutes)
Add in eggs, & vanilla
Beat in medium speed until all combined.
Then gradually fold in flour mixture & beat on
low speed until combined.

Then wrap with plastic wrap and chill for
AT LEAST 3 HOURS. (I like to let mine sit overnight.)

Making your cookies:
Open cookie dough and spoon out a small spoonful. Drop into powdered sugar and roll around until
VERY WELL COATED and small ball forms. The more sugar you have the better the outcome of the cookie.

Place each ball onto a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper or silpat.
Space about an inch apart.

At 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.
Let cool for about 5 minutes.

From our family to you, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

You cannot really go wrong with Oreos right? Especially when they are baked into a sweet bread, then drizzled with a white icing. It is simply delicious. My Oreo bread is also a really good bartering system to make sure your kids behave. (At least it works for me!)
You can also take this bread loaf to any dinner party and your friends will thank you for the next two months. Seriously. It is THAT good.
But between you and me- the best part is that this recipe is incredibly easy to make. It’s a sinch!
