How to Make Gluten-Free Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

These cookies are super easy to make! The secret is to make sure the dough is very cold and to re-roll the cookies twice in powdered sugar for a guaranteed crackle effect.

  1.  Whisk together the dry ingredients: gluten-free flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  2.  In a large mixing bowl add the sugar and oil, mix together for 30 seconds. Add the eggs and vanilla, continue to beat until light and fluffy.
  3.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix until well combined.
  4. Cover the bowl with aluminum foil and set the bowl in the freezer for 60 minutes.
  5. After 60 minutes remove the dough from the freezer. Scope out the dough to form 1-inch balls, then place the balls of dough onto two baking sheets. Place the baking sheets back in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  7. Remove the baking sheets from the oven. Roll the balls of dough in powdered sugar until fully coated. Then re-roll the balls again.
  8. Place the balls of dough onto the baking sheet, about 2 – inches apart.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes.
  10. Serve.

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Instructions
 

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

  • Remove the tray from the freezer. Place 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in a small bowl, and roll each ball of dough in the powdered sugar until fully coated. Roll the balls of dough once more to ensure they get enough coverage. Place each ball of dough back on the baking sheet about 2 - inches apart.
  • Bake in the oven for around 10 minutes.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven, then transfer to a cooling rack for up to 1 hour.
  • Store in a tightly sealed container for 5 days.
