Shannon's Okay-Maybe-I-Care-About-Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
Our latest Chow Bella showdown: a traditional holiday cookie exchange. From now through Christmas, we present Chow Bella's 12 Days of Christmas Cookies. Today, we bring you 10: Shannon Armour's Okay-Maybe-I-Care-About-Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.
While the "Who-Cares-About-Chocolate Lemon Crunch Sugar Cookies" were baking, I came across these Black Forest Chocolate Crinkle Cookies and decided that I must make them that very instant (it was like 1 a.m. at this point -- I was a little delirious). I'm a big fan of using instant coffee as flavoring plus these cookies looked like something good ol' mom would make.
Add cocoa to melted butter, whisking until smooth. Stir in the egg, espresso mixture, and vanilla, fully blending in each one before adding the next.
Fold chocolate chips and cherries into the dough until evenly distributed.
Roll balls in powdered sugar two times, then arrange on prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.
Let cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack.
