I was asked today what my favorite gluten-free cookie is. Chocolate crinkles! I made these for a party recently, and was reminded how delicious they are! Gluten eaters love them and can't tell they are GF - really :)
1/2 cup coconut oil
4 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups rice flour (I also used a little garbanzo bean flour)
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
Mix oil, chocolate, and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing thoroughly between each. Add vanilla. Measure flour and add. Stir into chocolate mix along with salt, xanthan gum, and baking powder. Chill several hours or overnight. Heat oven to 350. Form dough into balls (it will be stiff) and roll in confectioners sugar to coat. Place about 2" apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake about 10-14 minutes.
These cookies are awesome with or without coconut oil, but using high quality coconut oil adds just a touch of coconut flavor. These cookies freeze really well, and the dough keeps well in the fridge.
