Chocolate-Mint Crinkle Cookies
In a small saucepan cook and stir chocolate and butter over low until melted; cool slightly.Advertisement
In a large bowl stir together the sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate mixture. Stir in eggs, yogurt, vanilla and mint extract. In a small bowl stir together both flours and cocoa powder; stir into chocolate mixture until combined. Cover and chill dough until firm enough to handle (about 30 minutes).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar; place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes or just until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes. Remove; cool on a wire rack.
Tip: We do not recommend a sugar substitute for this recipe.
Variation: For smaller cookies, prepare as above, except shape dough into 1-inch balls. Bake 7 minutes or just until edges are firm. Makes about 80 cookies (2 per serving).
