Recipe

Deep chocolate crinkles are the original black-and-white cookie. They go into the oven as unimpressive balls rolled in confectioners’ sugar and emerge with an appealing contrast between the fissures of dark chocolate and the sugar.

The crinkles can be soft and chewy or crisp, depending on how long you bake them. The dough freezes well, so you can roll it into balls (don’t dip them in sugar), place on a baking sheet, and freeze until firm, then store in an airtight container or plastic freezer bag. To bake, remove as many balls as you need from the freezer and let thaw for 30 minutes, then roll in the sugar and bake.

Yield: Makes 5 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 4 ounces 99% unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar

Directions

  

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the oil, chocolate, and granulated sugar and blend on medium speed. With the mixer running, add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. There may be some small clumps of sugar in the batter at this point. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed, stopping once to scrape down the sides. Mix until just incorporated, 2 to 3 minutes. The dough will be sticky.

Gather the dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Position the racks in the lower and upper thirds of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with Silpats or parchment paper.

Pour the confectioners’ sugar onto a plate or into a shallow bowl. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, drop onto the sugar, and roll each ball so that all sides are covered. Place 2 inches apart on the prepared sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes for soft, chewy cookies, or 12 minutes for crisp cookies, rotating the pans halfway through baking. The cookies are done when the edges are set (but the tops still have a little give to them). Let cool completely on cooling racks.

The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days.
