25 Days of Christmas in Cookies

Day 12: Black Forest Crinkle Cookies...sort of
      Original recipe found on the blog Sweet Pea's Kitchen.

    This is a good recipe to involve the kiddos with. There is no mixing with the mixer. It is a simple measure-and-pour recipe. Just do some melting in the microwave, and mix away! And the aromas that come wafting up from the bowl--well, let's just say it takes a lot of restraint to keep going to bake them in the oven. You will definitely enjoy these. I know we did.

     1/2 cup all-purpose flour
     1/2 cup granulated sugar
     1/2 tsp baking powder
     1/2 tsp salt
     2 Tbsp unsalted butter
     1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
     1 egg
     2 1/2 Tbsp brewed coffee, cooled
     1/4 tsp vanilla extract
     1/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
     powdered sugar

  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter the baking sheet and set aside.

  Whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. 

  In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter; about 15 seconds.
  Whisk together the cocoa and melted butter until smooth. 

Whisk in the egg; fully blend in. 
Whisk in the cooled coffee; fully 
blend in. Whisk in the vanilla 
extract; fully blend in. If at any 
point, the chocolate looks like 
it is separating and not blending 
well, put the bowl back into the microwave for about 20 seconds 
and whisk until smooth. 

  Stir the flour mixture into the cocoa the cocoa mixture. 

Stir in the chocolate chips.

  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets. Sift powdered sugar over the mounds of cookie dough until they are well covered.

  Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool for a minute on the sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
