Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


I meant to post this back in December, but moving at Christmas time made it difficult.  These cookies would be perfect for a cookie exchange, a bake sale or classroom parties.  I have had this recipe since high school.  A friend of mine brought them to a class Christmas party and I have baked them now for  20 years.  My oldest son likes to whip up a batch.  He then gets a big cold glass of milk and will sit and eat about a dozen.  A perfect cookie for kids, because as my kids would say there is nothing “weird” in it.

What you will need:

1 Box of Devils Food Cake Mix

2 Tablespoons of Water

3 Eggs

1/2 Cup of Shortening

1/2 Cup Powder Sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  You will mix the cake mix, water, eggs, and shortening in a bowl.  You must mix by hand, not with an electric mixer.  It does get hard to mix it all in, so after a few stirs, I use my hand to mix it really good.  Roll you a ball of the cookie dough about the size of a walnut.  Then you roll the cookie ball  around in your powdered sugar, give it a nice thick coat.  Place on your cookie sheet, and bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  Makes about 3 dozen.
