Chocolate Crinkles

This is a delicious relatively inexpensive chocoholics treat. No butter helps make this a budget friendly cookie but it does take some forethought as the batter must be chilled to become a dough. Much yumminess and it is a childhood memory come to life each time I make them as my Mum made them when I was a wee one...

Chocolate Crinkles (modified from the original Betty Crocker recipe)
4 oz Unsweetened baking chocolate
1/2 C Canola or other vegetable oil
2 C Sugar (We use cane or Sucanat with fine results)
2 tsp Vanilla
4 Eggs lightly beaten
1 C All purpose flour
1 C Whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 C Powdered sugar

Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave, add in the oil, sugar and vanilla & let cool to roughly room temperature.
Add the eggs and stir until completely combined
Stir in the dry ingredients until well blended
Cover and refrigerate until solid

Scoop out in teaspoon size portions and roll into small balls
Roll in powdered sugar until completely covered

Bake @ 350F on parchment or greasefree paper for 11 minutes

Remove from oven and let rest for ~5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack

Chewy, chocolatey,goodness warm from the oven with an icey cold glass of milk. This recipe makes about 8 dozen and we're into it about $4.00 or $.50 a dozen. Very budget friendly
