Mocha Crinkles

So when I started this 12 days of cookies I had the best of intentions of doing a type of cookies each day.  However, like usual life makes other plans.  Morning sickness, holiday visiting and a sick baby boy have upset my best laid plans.  Good thing I started on the 1st of December though because at the rate I am sure to finish 12 types of different and new Christmas cookies.  Today’s cookie recipe is:



1 1/3 cups firmly packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup low-fat sour cream (I used regular)

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 3/4 cup flour

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp instant coffee

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1- Beat brown sugar and oil in medium bowl.  Mix in Sour Cream, egg and vanilla.  Set aside.

2-Mix flour, cocoa, coffee, baking soda, salt and pepper in another medium bowl.

3-Add flour mixture to brown sugar mixture; mix well. Refrigerate dough until firm (3-4 hours)

4-Preheat oven to 350.  Pour powdered sugar into a small bowl. Set aside.  Roll dough into 1 inch balls.  Roll balls in powdered sugar.

5-Bake on ungreased cookies sheets 10-12 minutes or until tops of cookies are firm to touch. (Do not over bake)


Ease: 9

Taste: 9 They taste like coffee brownies…mmmm

Appearance: 9 very cute

Overall: 9 I would definitely make these again.
