Holstein Crinkles Recipe

Ever sine I was a teen, I've been surprising my family with my baking experiments. These fudgy cookies are among my successes. I make several batches for friends around Christmastime.

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

"My grandma use to make these. They were my favorite cookie. She didn't use chips though. Thank you for posting it. Plan on making them for work. Love the brownie texture."

"Only thing I did differently was to use regular sized chocolate chips (didn't have the mini's on hand). Slightly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside...taste very much like a brownie! A favorite of ours from now on!"

"This cookie recipe has been around for a long time. This contributor did not "create" anything. I make them for Christmas every year and I got the recipe from a Betty Crocker cookbook!"

"I am really surprised that Taste of Home let her take full credit for "experimenting" to come up with this recipe which is practically WORD FOR WORD the recipe for Betty Crocker Chocolate Crinkles!!

Look it up."
