Mocha Crinkle Cookies #ChristmasCookies #Sponsored #Giveaway

 This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nielsen-Massey, a #ChristmasCookies sponsor.
I received complimentary product for the purpose of review and recipe development,

December always means Christmas cookies. Lots and lots of Christmas cookies. I was excited to see that Ellen at Family Around the Table was organizing a week-long event surrounding cookies...and what a week it has been! She has also created a giveway from one of our event sponsors. I hope you enjoy the recipes my fellow bloggers have shared to celebrate the cookie season. Get baking!

These are so easy to make, but are rich and yummy. They definitely satisfy any chocolate and coffee cravings I have.

  • 1-1/2 C lightly packed organic dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 C olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 t pure coffee extract (prefer Nielsen-Massey)
  • 1 t coffee liqueur
  • 1 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 T instant espresso powder
  • 2 C flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1 t fleur de sel
  • 1/4 C raw pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 C organic powdered sugar (for coating)

Procedure
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, eggs, coffee extract, and coffee liqueur. Mix until smooth. Fold in cocoa powder, espresso powder, flour, baking powder, salt, and pecans until just moistened.

Roll tablespoon-sized pieces of dough into balls. Roll each ball in powdered sugar until nicely coated.
