With Christmas behind us and a new year right in front of us, we have one day left before the countless halfhearted resolutions we make for ourselves. One final day before our
week year of productivity and health begins to binge on netflix, alcohol and of course cookies. Why not ring in the new year with champagne and chocolate crinkles?
Cookies, cookies and just when I thought Christmas was over, more cookies. What can I say? I just love sugar, no matter how much I’ve already crammed into my stomach this past month. Whether you’re going to a NYE party or hosting one, these little chocolate beauties are sure to wow anyone who takes a nibble.
And if NYE parties aren’t your thing, whip up a batch, pop some corn and throw on a movie for the perfect New Year’s Eve. Don’t even try not to eat the entire plate of cookies, like I said, this is the last day that inhaling 30 cookies isn’t really frowned upon…sort of.
1 pound cane sugar
6 ounces coconut oil, melted
2 1/2 ounces cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
11 ounces all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Mix and sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix together the cane sugar and oil until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla.
Mix in the dry ingredients until just combined, do not over mix.
Preheat oven to 350º.
Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, then scoop the dough into balls (I like to use a tiny ice cream scooper).
Dredge the dough balls in powdered sugar and bake until done, about 12 minutes.
