Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, by Jasper

(Jasper is 7. He loves to bake. He wanted to write a guest blog post. Here it is)

I made chocolate crinkle cookies today.

Once I make the batter I roll them up into a ball and then put them in powdered sugar then I put them on the baking sheet.

When they were finished getting cooked I tasted them and I think I made them very well.

They taste chocolatey. Their texture is soft. When I eat them they make me feel very happy. I like them very much. And you should make them too.

I got this recipe in a book called Kids Baking. It was a Christmas present. It was written by Abby Dodge, my Mom’s friend.Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
