Chocolate Crinkles

Growing up, my mom and I used to make these cookies every year for Christmas.  I don't know why we typically only make them at Christmas, but we do.  They are a delicious way to enjoy a chocolate cookie!!

  1. Well if this is your mom's recipe and they are still loved, they have to be good! I love those deep crinkles. They remind me of another recipe for an almond cookie. Crunch on top and yet moist on the inside.
