Day 6: Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
They're also not a calorie drain either. It feels like you're cheating but you're not, as long as you can have one and be satisfied. I'll take this 80 calories over my 80 calorie sugar free pudding during the holiday season. I'll admit, these little buggers can be tricky to make due to the stickiness of the dough and you may be tempted to spackle that crack in the basement with it but they taste so dang good and look so pretty when they're done, you don't care about a little irritation in the prep process. You can always wet your cookie scoop with cold water before scooping into the sugar to help make a smooth transition. I know that's what I'm doing next time. They last and stay pillow soft for as long as you want to keep them around. Perfect for gift giving!
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
1 box Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 tub Cool Whip Lite (8 oz)
1/4 c powdered sugar (only 1 tbsp will stick to cookies, if that)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour cake mix in a large bowl, add thawed cool whip and egg. Combine thoroughly. Dough will be very sticky.
Put powdered sugar in a small bowl. Use a small cookie scoop and drop dough into powdered sugar and toss to coat then shake off excess in a colander.
Place on a silpat or ungreased cookie sheet 2" apart. Bake for 11-13 minutes. Allow to cool on sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Makes 32 cookies
