Crinkly Crinkles

All you need is love and Christmas cookies.

I have already made these cookies three times before writing this recipe (srry) because they are so delicious. My only suggestion is to make sure you make the dough at least 3-4 hours before you plan to bake the cookies because the dough actually needs to chill for a bit. Trust me.

INGREDIENTS: Makes ~2 dozen

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Hershey’s is dairy free!)
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup veggie oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Confectioner’s sugar for decoration


  1. Mix together the cocoa, sugar, and oil. Then, add the eggs and vanilla. Stir really well – it’ll start to look like brownie batter.
  2. Combine the baking soda, salt, and flour and add into the batter. DOUGH MUST CHILL FOR 3-4 HOURS (or more!)
  3. Preheat oven to 350F. Cover cookie sheets in parchment paper.
  4. Make balls of dough on the cookie sheet and sprinkle each with confectioner’s sugar. Bake for 10 minutes and ta-daaa!

About The Dairy QueenThe Dairy Queen

Just a New England gal stuck in rural Virginia. Can be found avoiding dairy at all costs. Talents include speed reading ingredient labels and enjoying ice cream via smell. If I could major in Spotify playlist construction and dairy free cooking, I would.

I have been blessed with a dairy allergy and have not touched a cheesy piece of pizza in years. Thus, here we are. I hope you find these recipes simple, inexpensive, and delicious. I have years of experience avoiding dairy, so hopefully my adventures can help you out.
