Chewy Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Crinkle cookies, those delightful treats we love today, have a history shrouded in a bit of mystery. Most sources point to the early to mid-20th century, likely the 1950s, for the origin of crinkle cookies. A popular story attributes the creation of crinkle cookies to Helen Fredell of St. Paul, Minnesota. The story goes that Betty Crocker (though likely a team, not a single person) featured Fredell's molasses crinkle cookie recipe in her 1957 “Cooky Carnival” cookbook, sparking their rise in popularity. While the Fredell story focuses on molasses cookies, chocolate crinkles seem to be the most well-known version today.

The ease of preparation and delightful texture likely contributed to this crinkle chocolate cookie recipe becoming a favorite, especially around the holidays. Today, we enjoy many flavor variations beyond chocolate. The signature crinkles on these cookies are achieved by rolling the dough in powdered sugar before baking. The sugar absorbs moisture during baking, causing the top to crackle and form those lovely ridges. While the exact origin story might be a bit fuzzy, there's no doubt that crinkle cookies have become a beloved treat, offering a delicious combination of chewy texture, crinkled exterior, and a variety of flavors to tempt our taste buds. We hope that this post inspires you. Happy baking!
