Strawberry chocolate crinkle cookies

These chocolate crinkle cookies, wildly popular this time of year, get a boost with fruit flavors.

  • Yield: 36 cookies
  • Prep time: 30 minutes
  • Cook time: 18 minutes

Chocolate crinkle cookies are one of those classic cookies we all remember from the simpler days. This new adaptation takes a wonderful oldie but goodie and changes it up just enough to keep your taste buds on their toes.

You can use freeze-dried raspberries, as the originator of this recipe did, but stay away from freeze-dried blueberries unless you want green cookies (the alkaline in baking powder mixing with the blueberries yields a bright green color).


  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ounce freeze-dried strawberries
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350°. Line two baking pans with parchment paper.

Using a mallet or small processor, grind freeze-dried berries into powder.

Mix oil, cocoa, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Add 1/2 of the berry powder. Add eggs, and mix until fully incorporated.

Refrigerate dough for several hours or overnight. Divide into three pieces. Divide each piece into a dozen balls, and roll in a mixture of powdered sugar and remaining berry powder.

Bake for 18 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, and then carefully transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Repeat with remaining two batches of dough.
