Spicy & Fudgy Crinkle Cookies

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

For Cookies

  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 7 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Soft flour, baking soda, salt, pepper, & cocoa in bowl.
  3. In separate bowl add melted butter.
  4. Stir in both sugars until mixture looks like coarse sand.
  5. Add sour cream & vanilla to butter mixture & stir.
  6. Add in dry mixture and mix until fully combined.
  7. Scoop cookie dough balls onto baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes because at this point the tops appear slightly cracked, signaling they are done.
  9. Cool to room temperature.

Notes

  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Be sure to allow your dairy ingredients to reach room temperature. Room temperature ingredients not only combine more effortlessly (no over-mixing needed) but they also trap air so much better. This trap air will expand and produce a fluffy texture during your baking process.
  • Prepared Pan: There will always be the "next best way to prepare your pan" article. Simply put however, the most effective way i find in my kitchen is a light rub of shortening around the sides, parchment paper on the bottom of the pan (for majority of baking pans), & a very light dusting of flour (cocoa powder for chocolate baked goods) all throughout.
