This is a wonderfully, sweet - but not over-poweringly so - cookie that is popular in Amish homes. And why wouldn't it be? Dusted with powdered sugar and the wonderful taste of cocoa, this cookie is a winner!:) This is a photo of some from Country Lane Bakery in Middlebury, Indiana. Yum!
Here is a popular recipe among Amish cooks for these yummy cookies!
Amish Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
- CHOCOLATE CRINKLE COOKIES
- 2 cups sugar
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- ¾ cup cocoa
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2-⅓ cups flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- powdered sugar
- In a large mixing bowl, mix well.
- Cover and chill.
- Roll into 1-inch across balls and roll in powdered sugar.
- Place onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes.
I wonder if they can be made with 1/4 of the sugar?
Cheryl, I think you probably could, it'd just obviously be a less sweet cookie...but that's a matter of personal taste, so I am sure you can adjust!
I have made these cookies for over 50 years. I use 1 cube butter instead of oil, and about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. If you saw my recipe card for these cookies, you'd know how many times it's been used!!!

Cheryl Unless you like cookies not so sweet, I would try your 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/4 up Applesauce. They will taste just as they should, the texture is the same and cooking time about the same. I do that with most of my cookies and sweets. It really cuts down on the calories!
Good advice, Terry, thanks for sharing!
