Sometimes we try a food at a restaurant that we can't get enough of. Such is the case of the Fudge Crinkle cookies at a local restaurant/bakery here in our town. As much as I like to support our local establishments, I can't always justify the expense of buying these cookies because we go through them so quickly! Finally, I've come across an excellent copy cat recipe that I can make at home (no idea where I got the recipe, otherwise I'd give proper credit). Best part is that the ingredients are always in my pantry.
Brownie Fudge Crinkles
1 box brownie mix (the size that makes a 9x13 pan of brownies)
1/4 c. water
1/3 c. powdered sugar
Mix brownie mix, egg and water. (It will seem dry but just keep stirring. Trust me.) Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour. I found that the dough is easier to handle when it is stiff.
Use a cookie scoop to make 1" balls, then roll in powdered sugar.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool about 6 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. Yield: 2 1/2 dz. cookies
