Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

These are one of my favorite cookies.
Growing up, my best friend’s grandmother would make them.
She would keep them in her deep freeze and pull them out when we would come over.
Do you want to know what her name was?

(in case you’re new here that’s my baby’s name)
To this day I like to store a few Chocolate Crinkle Cookies in the freezer!
This isn’t Ms. Eloise’s recipe.
But instead my recipe is a fourth generation recipe from my great grandmother.
I love that I come from a long line of amazing cooks!
Add this recipe to your Holiday Baking List!

  1. I've always want to make these cookies bc they're so tasty, but I never knew what they were called so it was hard to google and try to find the recipe. Thank you for sharing! Now I won't have to hope they show up on a cookie platter at church get-togethers πŸ™‚
