How to prepare Soft Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Prepare the dough

Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa into a bowl.

Combine the instant coffee and the pinch of salt and set aside.

In another bowl, whip the softened butter with the sugar until fluffy.

Combine the vanilla extract while still whisking and the eggs, one at a time.

Add the flour mixture and mix well.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Form the cookies

After the resting time, with the mixture hardened, form balls the size of a walnut.

How to bake Soft Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Bake in a preheated static oven at 350°F (180°C) for about 15-18 minutes.

If you have a fan oven, bake at 320°F (160°C) for about 12-15 minutes.

Don’t overcook them because the inside of the cocoa cookies should remain slightly soft.

The cookies, at the end of baking, will be soft on the outside but will harden once cooled.

Store the Soft Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

The cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature.

Freeze cookies. The cookies can be frozen either already baked or to bake.

To freeze baked cookies, first let them cool completely. Arrange them in a single layer and place them in the freezer. Once frozen, place them in a freezer bag and use them up within 3 months.
Allow them to thaw at room temperature before consuming.

To freeze uncooked cookies, after forming balls with the dough, arrange them in a single layer.
Place them in the freezer and after an hour move them to a freezer bag. Consume them within 3 months.
When baking them, let them thaw at room temperature. Dip them in powdered sugar and proceed to baking as described in recipe.
