An old-fashioned favorite – recipe from Ruth Cain, Hartselle, Alabama.

Crackle Cookies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • confectioners’ sugar

In a large mixing bowl, melt chocolate in microwave, 30 seconds, stir, and repeat 30 seconds; stir. Add oil to melted and cooled chocolate, add sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking powder, salt and mix well.  Take spatula and scrape sides towards the center of bowl; making a small mound.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Fill a quart size plastic bag 1/3 full with confectioners’ sugar.  With sugared hands, shape dough into 1-inch ball and place in bag, enough to fill a cookie sheet.  Be sure to coat cookie completely before placing 2 inches apart on cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.  Place in preheated 350 oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.  Yield: 2-1/2 dozen

Ruth’s tip: use a fork to flatten the cookie before placing in oven.
