What are Crinkle Cookies?
Crinkle cookies are one of the most baked Holiday cookies. These cookies have a cake like texture to bite. These Chocolate Crinkle Cookies taste like brownie bites and they are my absolute favorite. The cookie dough balls puff up in the oven and crack. The icing sugar, gives a look of Christmas snow and hence, the crinkle cookies look so incredibly gorgeous.
