I know it's not Tuesday, but we made these last night and so I though I would post the recipe here. It is a common recipe, usually called Chocolate Crinkles, but in my house growing up they were Chocolate Chews. This is the recipe my mom used.
Here you go!
Chocolate Chews Cookies (aka Chocolate Crinkles)
1/2 cup shortening
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 TBSP vanilla
1/3 cup milk 4TBSP cocoa
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 3 cookies sheets with parchment paper.
In large mixing bowl, beat eggs, shortening, sugar, vanilla, and milk until smooth.
Beat in cocoa, then add salt and baking powder.
Beat in flour ½ cup at a time until well blended. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least one hour.
When chilled, scoop dough into tablespoon sized portions (a cookie scoop works well). Roll in powdered sugar and place on parchment about 2 inches apart.
Bake 10-12 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Cool on a wire rack.
