At work, we go out to eat fairly often. We used to go out every day for lunch, but have slacked since a few of us are trying to save money by bringing our own lunches.
On one of the days everyone ventured out for lunch, we went to a restaurant that we have been to quite a few times before. We ordered our usual, and truly enjoyed it. Then something new happened. The waiter brought us these chocolate looking cookies covered with powdered sugar. THEY WERE SO GOOD!!!!!! Crunchy on the outside but nice and moist, almost fudgy on the inside.
I instantly fell in love. So I tried to convince our firm that they were disgusting, and that I would suffer through and eat them all so that they would not be wasted. It worked on one person, and I will ignore the fact that that one associate was on a diet.
The name of the cookies were unknown. We didn’t think to ask the waiter. They had to have some name and I needed it so I could re-create these beauties.
A month or two later, we went back to the restaurant. No cookies this time! I couldn’t help but to ask the waiter about this. He said they don’t always have them, but that they are called Crinkle Cookies.
From there I googled and reviewed different Crinkle Cookie recipes, I tweaked some things on the recipes I found … and then, I conquered.
1/3 c Coconut Oil
2 Large Eggs
1 c Confectioner’s Sugar
1/3 c Water
1) Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
2) Mix the first pouch of the Duncan Hines cake mix, oil and eggs.
3) Follow the directions for the second pouch of the Duncan Hines cake mix by adding the 1/3 c of water. And this mixture to the above mixture.
4) Shape the dough into 1.5 inch balls.
5) Roll the balls in the confectioners sugar.
6) Bake for about 12 minutes.
7) Enjoy one of the most addicting cookies, in my opinion, EVER.
There was a meeting I had to attend this past Monday, so I brought the cookies for my group to try. All four of them LOVED the cookies. I also sent my friend Julie home with cookies for her husband. He and his brother LOVED the cookies. It is clearly a sign your cookies are good when multiple people use the work “LOVED” to describe them!
Now my crinkle cookies aren’t hard on the outside, rather they are super moist, almost brownie like, yet fudgy. Had I not shared these babies with others, I would have eaten them all. Y’all know the damage I can do when it comes to amazing, tasty, delicious cookies.
