I am so thrilled to be joinging the Cookie Exchange hosted by the lovely Vanessa @ Southern In My Heart., and Gourmet Meals For Less. Be sure to visit them to find wonderful cookie recipes for the season. This is my family's favorite cookie. It is a Chocolate Crackle. Tastes like a brownie and so yummy.
Chocolate Crackle Recipe
4 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/2 c. salad oil
2 c. sugar
4 eggs - unbeaten
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chopped walnuts ( optional )
1 c. powdered sugar.
Melt chocolate, add oil, sugar and beat until well mixed. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each. Add vanilla and mix. Add the sifted flour, baking power and salt gradually and mix thoroughly. Add nuts if desired. Cover with saran and place in refrigerator to chill for a couple of hours or overnight.
Use a rounded teaspoon full of dough and shape into a ball, then roll in powdered sugar. Place on greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 F. for 10 to 12 minutes. Cookies will look slightly wet and puffy when done. Remove as soon as possible to wax paper to cool. Makes about 4 dozen.
Merry Christmas, and thanks for stopping by.
