This is my first gluten-free Christmas. I remember how sick I felt last Christmas, so I am looking forward to enjoying this one. Between now and Christmas I will try to post a variety of different baked goods & sweets.
This recipe for gluten-free Chocolate Crinkle Cookies comes from a gluten free blog that I have just recently become a fan of. It is from Hey That Tastes Good, where you can find a variety of gluten-free recipes.
Now, onto the recipe! These cookies are delicious. They have a great texture, they store wonderfully, and well, everyone will love them. Trust me. Just don’t inhale while eating a cookie that is rolled in confectioner’s sugar…it can be hazardous to your health.
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 4 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted (or 4 tablespoons cocoa mixed with 12 tablespoons melted butter)
- 2 cups granulated sugar
