Making my latest favorite cookie for the first time

During a farmers market trip a couple years ago, I discovered a wonderful cookie I’d never previously tried. It’s crackly and a bit crisp on the outside and chewy, almost gooey like a brownie, on the inside.

They’re called Chocolate Crackle Cookies, which makes sense when you learn that the dough balls are rolled in powdered sugar and crack open as they bake, giving you a glimpse of the sophisticated goodness inside!

My cookie source at the market started his own restaurant and no longer sells the cookies, so I went in search of a recipe to make them myself. Most recipes I found called for vegetable oil, but I prefer butter in my cookies, so I kept hunting until I found this America’s Test Kitchen version.

I finished baking these beauties shortly after midnight last night and they’re delicious! Unsweetened cocoa and unsweetened chocolate prevent them from being too sickly sweet, despite the sugar coating. They were even better today than in the middle of the night. I’ll happily add these to my cookie repertoire!

Today’s #OneGoodThing was enjoying these delightful homemade cookies with Mama!

  1. I’m going to have to try that recipe. I used to have a recipe from some old cookbook for the best chocolate crinkle cookies (Better Homes and Garden or something like that). Of course I haven’t made those cookies in years. Thanks for piquing my interest again! Enjoy the yumminess

    • They were worth the effort! So good! The dough was surprisingly sticky and wet, but it worked out well. Also I made them half the recommended size and they were plenty big! Enjoy!!!
