About Me

I was a banker who pursued my passion in baking and turned it into a home-based business.I taught Home Economics (HELE) in The Learning Child in Ayala Alabang. I also was a community volunteer and taught arts and crafts and home economics to the children in Virlanie, a non-govt institution that care for streetchildren.

Chocolate Crinkles

This is an easy cookie recipe that you can do with your kids, nephews, nieces, their playmates. You don't need an electric mixer.

You can also wrap them in artful packaging and sell or give way on Christmas.
This cookie is crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside.

I used to sell this when i was working in the bank.
I remember Eric, my office mate's son. Every time his mom would mention my name, he remembered the chocolate crinkles his mom used to buy from me. And he said it is the best :-).

2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 large eggs
2 cups all- purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted

**For beginners - melt the chocolate squares over double boiler. Set aside to cool.

With a baking spoon or wire whisk, mix the sugar, oil, melted chocolate, vanilla. Add in eggs one at a time. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until well blended. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Grease cookie sheets.

When dough is kinda firm and easy to handle, scoop a teaspoon of the dough and roll into a ball. Roll into the powdered sugar. Place about 2 inches apart on the greased cookie sheets. Flatten dough. Bake them immediately. Put the rest of the dough back to the refrigerator while waiting for the cookies to bake (if cannot be baked at one time). Bring it out to bake the next batch. 

Bake until the surface of the cookies have cracked, around 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets and transfer to cookie/cake racks to cool.
