Chocolate Crinkles

These are one of my husband's favorites. He  likes to take these in to the school that he runs and hand them out to the students. They are very chocolate-y and soft. So good.

Sift together:

1 ¾ cups flour

2/3 cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp baking powder

½  tsp salt


Mix thoroughly:

½ cup margarine

6 Tbs  butter, at room temp

1 cup sugar

1 eggs

2 Tbs milk

½ tsp vanilla extract



Chocolate chips

Large grain sugar for coating

Cream the shortening, butter and sugar in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer set on high speed, beat until fluffy. Add the egg, milk and vanilla and beat on high about 2 minutes.

Reduce the speed to low, add the flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or as long as overnight.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter baking sheets.

Using damp hands, form the dough into 1 ½ inch balls. Roll the cookies in sugar and place on prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with a few drops of water

Bake until puffed and slightly cracked on top but still soft, about 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 1 minute and transfer to wire racks
