Chocolate Crinkles

Everybody has a signature dish they make. For me, these cookies are my signature dish. My mother used to make them when I was a kid and I loved them. When I was in college, my mother bought me this Family Circle Holiday Cookie Cookbook. The recipe in the book had chocolate chips – something my mother hadn’t put in hers. I have to say – I think my recipe is better then. Best when served warm from the oven – they melt in your mouth.

I used to bake Chocolate Crinkles for volunteer trainings when I worked at Hope House. I would always put the extras in the mailroom for the staff to enjoy. It took a while but my friend Trish finally figured out I was the one making these cookies. For the baby shower for her twins a few years ago, she asked me to make these cookies. I hope you love them as much as she does.
