Default Chocolate Crinkle Cookies (Cook's Illustrated)

Another winning recipe from Cook's Illustrated magazine! Just what I was going for!

These cookies are brownie-like. Wonderful, rich, chocolate-y!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies (Cook’s illustrated)

Makes 22 cookies
Both natural and Dutch-processed cocoa will work in this recipe. Our favorite natural cocoa is Hershey’s Natural Cocoa Unsweetened; our favorite Dutch-processed cocoa is Droste Cocoa. Our preferred unsweetened chocolate is Hershey’s Unsweetened Baking Bar.
Ingredients
1 cup (5 ounces) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 1/2 ounces) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups packed (10 1/2 ounces) brown sugar
3 large eggs
4 teaspoons instant espresso powder (optional) Note: I used Folger's crystals
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup (3 1/2 ounces) granulated sugar
1/2 cup (2 ounces) confectioners' sugar
Instructions
1. 1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in bowl.
2. Whisk brown sugar; eggs; espresso powder, if using; and vanilla together in large bowl. Combine chocolate and butter in bowl and microwave at 50 percent power, stirring occasionally, until melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Whisk chocolate mixture into egg mixture until combined. Fold in flour mixture until no dry streaks remain. Let dough sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
4. Place granulated sugar and confectioners’ sugar in separate shallow dishes. Working with 2 tablespoons dough (or use #30 scoop) at a time, roll into balls. Drop dough balls directly into granulated sugar and roll to coat. Transfer dough balls to confectioners’ sugar and roll to coat evenly. Evenly space dough balls on prepared sheets, 11 per sheet.
5. Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until puffed and cracked and edges have begun to set but centers are still soft (cookies will look raw between cracks and seem underdone), about 12 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through baking. Let cool completely on sheet before serving.

I am bumping this up to add the update that every single person who has tried these cookies this season remarked about how great they are, and how you can really taste the coffee in them, along with the chocolate!

I used Folger crystals, since that's what I had, and a big thanks to Moxie, who told me to dissolve the crystals in the vanilla!

I will make these again!

My Dad said that these were his favorites after he tried last year's batch. So those were the only cookies I made this year.

They are so chocolate-y that I don't even miss the thumbprints, Toll House, and Russion Teacakes.

Almost.

The rum cake and eggnog make up for the missing cookies.
